  • 1 tbsp. ground cumin
  • 2 (15 oz) cans of black beans, drained and rinsed well
  • 1 (14 oz) can of diced tomatoes, drained
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded and diced (I had to use jarred jalapenos cause apparently grocery stores around me don't have fresh jalapenos -- yeah, seriously?, so if you're using it from a jar, grab 2 large fingerfuls of them and chop them up finely)
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Any kind of rice
