    Chris Prosperi

    • 1 cup white rice
    • 2 cups water
    • 15.5 can black beans – drained and rinsed
    • 14.5 can diced tomatoes
    • 1/2 cup diced chicken breast
    • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
    • 1 ground teaspoon cumin
    • 1 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
    • Black pepper to taste

    In a large bowl combine the rice, water, drained black beans, diced tomatoes, salt, black pepper, cumin, chili powder, honey, and cilantro. Then pour into the insert of a rice cooker, close the lid and set to cook. If using a pot, pour into the pot and bring to a simmer on the stove. Place the lid on the pot and reduce the heat to a low and let steam for 10-12 minutes. When cooked dump into a bowl and fluff with a fork. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.
