The black beans and fresh salsa give it a bold flavor that'll get the fiesta started in your mouth. The great thing about this side dish is that you can serve it up with a roasted chicken or for taco Tuesday. No matter how you eat it, you just can't go wrong.

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 cup uncooked long-grain white rice
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 1/2 cup frozen corn
  • 1 cup fresh salsa
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil until hot. Stir in onion and cook 3 minutes or until tender.
  2. Add rice and continue to cook until rice begins to brown. Add chicken broth; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until rice is tender.
  3. Stir in black beans, corn, salsa, and cumin; cook another 5 minutes or until heated through. Stir in cilantro and serve.

So Many Options:

  • When it comes to the rice, we think a dish like this is best with a long grain white rice, however, if you want a bit more flavor, try making this with Jasmine or Basmati rice.
  • This is the perfect side to go with our Royal Roasted Chicken or this Balsamic Flank Steak.
  • Rice is super versatile. If you like it as a side dish, you'll love it as a dessert. Check out Our Best Rice Pudding Recipes!
