Black Beans and Yellow Rice

  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 1 green pepper chopped
  • 2 clovers garlic (you can use garlic power)
  • 1/4 C olive oil (or you can use veggie oil)
  • 3 15oz cans of black beans
  • 1 pkg. yellow rice mix, cooked according to pkg. directions
  • 1 14.5oz can of stewed tomatoes, chopped, undrained
  • 1 1/2 Cups of water
  • 1 T of vinegar
  • 1 t. sugar
  • 1 t. pepper
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 8oz can tomato sauce
Hot cooked yellow rice (you buy this in the ethnic section of most supermarkets, sometimes they have it with the rice, it is inexpensive, and will say 'yellow rice' on the box or bag. You cook it like regular rice. green onions, chopped sour cream cook the onions, green pepper and garlic in the oil until tender.and the next 7 ingredients, bring to a boil.
Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour. Uncover and simmer 20 to 30 additional minutes, stirring occasionally. (of course, I skip most of this and just cook it in the crock pot) Serve the bean mixture over the hot cooked yellow rice, top each serving with green onions and a dollop of sour cream.
