  • Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a separate saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute red bell pepper until semi-soft, about 5 minutes. Add onion; saute until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in black beans, garlic, cumin, and pepper; cook and stir until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Pour vegetables into a large serving bowl; add the cooked rice and toss.

Cook's Notes:

Vegetable broth can be substituted for the chicken broth.

If desired, use olive oil in place of butter in the recipe.
