    • 1 cup white rice
    • 2 cups water
    • 15.5 can black beans – drained and rinsed
    • 14.5 can diced tomatoes
    • ½ cup diced chicken breast
    • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
    • Black pepper to taste
    • 1 ground teaspoon cumin
    • 1 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • ¼ cup chopped cilantro




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