Black Beans & Rice

If using dry beans...Soak over night and then add all the ingredients in the crockpot in the AM cook on low the whole day.

For those who use canned (which I do). I just do it on the stove in my cast iron dutch oven.

Sautee 1-2 onions in butter until caramelized
Add 1 diced red pepper and sauté until cooked.

Add in 3 cans of black beans
2-3 tbs of cumin
1-2 tbs of thyme
2-3 cloves of garlic
3 cups of beef stock
1 bay leaf

Simmer all for 2 hours until starting to thicken.

Serve over cooked brown rice (I cook mine in beef stock in my rice cooker). I serve with hot salsa, more diced onions and LOTS of sour cream.
