Black Beans over Rice

My family eats a lot of beans and rice. It's cheap, healthy, but we mostly eat it because my whole family loves it. We have a few different recipes, but this is one of our favorites.

1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped red or green bell pepper
2 Tb chopped jalapeno pepper
1 tsp vegetable oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cans black beans, drained
1 can fat free refried beans
1 can vegetable or beef broth
1 Tb lime juice
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 cup snipped cilantro
Queso Fresco cheese

  • Chop onion, bell pepper and jalapeno and snip cilantro and set aside.
  • Heat oil in medium pot over medium heat. Add onion, pepper, jalapeno and garlic. Cook and stir for 3 minutes. Add both kinds of beans, broth, lime juice and cumin. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, uncovered for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, stir in cilantro and ladle into bowls. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve over rice.
