    Vino Girl's Note:

    This is a good Tex-Mex side dish (or even a main dish) that isn't very spicy, but IS very garlicky. We had this with Cilantro Lime Fish. I didn't have quite enough of the fresh herbs so I mixed dried with fresh. From Fine Cooking (April/May 2005)

    1. 1
      In a one quart saucepan, combine rice with water.
    2. 2
      Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, cover, reduce heat to low, and cook for 20 minutes.
    3. 3
      Remove from heat and let the pan stand, covered, for 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      While the rice stands, drain the tomatoes, reserving the juice.
    5. 5
      Add enough water to the juice to equal one cup of liquid.
    6. 6
      Heat a 10-12 inch skillet over medium-high heat; add in oil, garlic, and jalapeno.
    7. 7
      Cook until the garlic is browned and the jalapeno is fragrant (one minute).
    8. 8
      Add the black beans, salt, cumin, and chili powder; stir gently a few times to cook the spices and get beans mixed into the rice (30 seconds).
    9. 9
      Stir in the tomato juice mixture and bring to a boil.
    10. 10
      Adjust the heat as necessary to maintain a gentle boil; cook and occasionally stir until the beans have absorbed much of the liquid (5-7 minutes).
    11. 11
      Add the tomatoes, oregano, cilantro, and cooked rice.
    12. 12
      Cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is warmed (1-2 minutes).

      This was painfully bland when made according to the recipe. I was able to save it by adding some adding some additional ingredients, but I wouldn't want to eat it again.

      Good recipe, but it was missing something. I added freshly squeezed lime juice from a half of a lime, plus about a 1/4 cup of the juice from canned corn. (Make sure it doesn't say "sodium free" or "in syrup". Just the regular kind.) After these small changes it tasted very good!
