Recipe: Black Beans and Rice with Chicken and Apple Salsa

Black Beans and Rice with Chicken and Apple Salsa
Bon Appetit Magazine, Jan 2012, p. 26
4.5 stars

I've had this recipe in my recipe folder for, well, 2 years and have bypassed the recipe many many times -- not sure why.

Why didn't we make this before?!?!?

Such an easy (perfect for a weekday meal!) and super flavorful dish, and it could be made vegetarian if you leave out the chicken.

I love the black beans -- how they're cooked with garlic, chili powder, coriander, cumin and chicken broth.  This is 100x better than a Chipotle burrito bowl.

Ingredients include:  apple, cilantro, red onion, black beans, green bell pepper, rice, chicken, lime juice, garlic, chili powder, ground coriander, cumin seeds, chicken broth, vegetable oil, salt & pepper


  • I'd prefer using a sweeter apple - Fuji - next time instead of a Granny Smith
  • Used yellow and red peppers along with the green bell pepper since we had them in the fridge
  • Added a dollop of sour cream on top since we had some in the fridge\
