Black Beans and Rice


Black beans and rice are a great winter food.  They are warming and very filling.  They are also very healthy.  The key to this dish is to soak the black beans in water over night.


  • 1 lb. dried black beans
  • water
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 7 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1-2 jalapenos, diced (can omit)
  • 2 TBSP dried oregano
  • 6-7 c. chicken or veggie broth
  • Hot cooked Rice
  • Pico de gallo to top the dish (simply mix some tomatoes, onion, cilantro, garlic, salt and lime juice together)


  1. Place black beans in a pot and cover them with water and soak overnight.
  2. Place soaked beans, onion, garlic, jalapenos, oregano, and broth in a slow cooker, and cook on HIGH for 6 hours or until beans are soft and tender.  Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  3. Serve over hot rice and top with pico de gallo.
