Black Beans and Rice

This is such an economical and easy dish to make, not to mention delicious. On days when I don't have bread to make a sandwich for lunch or don't have anything else to pack for my lunch, I'll cook the rice while preparing breakfast in the morning. Then I grab the other items and assemble everything at work.



  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • salsa
  • sour cream
  • black olives (optional)


Spoon some rice into a serving bowl, top with some black beans. Microwave on high until heated through. Top with salsa and sour cream. You can add some black olives if you'd like. Serves about 4.
