Prep Time

10 minutes

Cooking Time

40 minutes




  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-1/2 cups long grain rice
  • 8 ounces of Mexican chorizo
  • 12 ounces diced tomatoes
  • 2 jalapeño peppers chopped 
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican oregano
  • ½ cup frozen corn or fresh corn
  • 1 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 2 cups chicken broth or more
  • 12 ounces of black beans canned, drained
  • Cilantro and crumbly white cheese for serving
  • 1-2 tablespoons of favorite hot sauce + more for serving
  • 1-2 tablespoons chili powder I used a combination of ancho powder and cayenne powder



  • Heat a large pan to medium heat and add olive oil.
  • Add onion and jalapeño peppers and cook for about 5 minutes to soften.
  • Add the chorizo and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring, until it is cooked through.
  • Add garlic and cook another minute, until you can smell the yummy garlic.
  • Add the rice and stir. 
  • Cook for a couple of minutes, stirring, to very lightly brown the rice.
  • Add the black beans, diced tomatoes, and broth and stir to combine.
  • Add the corn, chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper, and hot sauce if using. Stir and bring to a quick boil.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until the rice has absorbed all of the liquid and is softened to your liking. If it needs more cooking, add a bit more broth and keep it simmering.
  • Remove from heat, cool slightly, and fluff with a fork. Top with cilantro for serving. Can top it with crumbled white cheese too.
