Originally developed with Mexican Tortilla Flavor Infused Broth, we’ve updated this recipe to use Swanson® Chicken Broth, cumin and lime juice for authentic Mexican flavor. This rice is delicious on its own as a main dish, simply pair it with a salad, or serve it as a side dish with grilled or roasted meat.

tablespoon olive oil
cup uncooked long grain white rice
medium onion, diced (about 1/2 cup)
medium green pepper, diced (about 1 cup)
tablespoons tomato paste
cups Swanson® Chicken Broth or Swanson® Natural Goodness® Chicken Broth or Swanson® Organic Chicken Broth
teaspoons ground cumin
can (about 15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
tablespoon lime juice
cup chopped fresh cilantro
Heat the oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the rice, onion and pepper and cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook and stir for 1 minute (This will caramelize the sugars in the tomato paste and deepen the flavor).
Stir in the broth and cumin and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 15 minutes or until the rice is tender. Stir in the beans and cook until the mixture is hot. Stir in the lime juice. Season the taste. Sprinkle with the cilantro before serving.
