HOW TO COOK RICE
Rice with beans pairs completely with Chicken, Pork or Beef, PLUS tacos, burritos or even enchiladas.
Saut onion and garlic right up until fragrant, then add in ground cumin. Frying dry rice in the fragrant oil actually sets off these flavours ahead of incorporating in your broth. I use chicken broth (or stock) but you can use beef. Include your beans and deliver it all to a boil, then simmer till rice is tender. Stir only when halfway by way of the cooking approach to stay away from your rice turning to mush.
Flavour with a modest drizzle of olive oil and lime juice, then mix by means of fresh chopped cilantro (or parsley).
