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