Ingredients

  • 1

    cup uncooked medium-grain white rice

  • 1

    14-1/2-ounce can diced tomatoes (preferably “petite-cut”)

  • 2

    Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil

  • 6

    medium cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1

    medium fresh jalapeño, cored and finely chopped (if you like spicy foods, leave in the ribs and seeds; if not, remove them)

  • 1

    15-oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed

  • 2

    tsp. kosher or fine sea salt

  • 2

    tsp. ground cumin

  • 1

    tsp. chili powder

  • 1/4

    cup finely chopped fresh oregano leaves and tender stems

  • 1/4

    cup finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves and tender stems

Directions

In a 1-quart saucepan, combine the rice with 2 cups cold water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, cover, reduce the heat to low, and cook for 20 min. Remove from the heat and let the pan stand, covered, for another 5 min. While the rice steams, set a fine sieve in a bowl and drain the can of tomatoes. Pour the tomato juices into a 1-cup liquid measure. Add enough water to the tomato juices to equal 1 cup. Heat a 10- to 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Pour in the oil and stir-fry the garlic and jalapeño until the garlic browns and the jalapeño smells pungent, about 1 min. Add the black beans, salt, cumin, and chili powder; stir two to three times to incorporate the mixture and cook the spices, about 30 seconds. Stir in the tomato juice and water mixture and bring to a boil. Adjust the heat to maintain a gentle boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans absorb much of the liquid, 5 to 7 min. Add the tomatoes, oregano, cilantro, and cooked rice and cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is warm, 1 to 2 min.
