  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Oregano
  • ¼ large Onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 10 ounces Mexican Chorizo, Mexican
  • 14.5 ounces Diced Tomatoes, canned
  • 4 ounces Diced Green Chiles, canned
  • 1 cup Long Grain White Rice, uncooked
  • 7 ounces Black Beans, canned, drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon Chicken Bouillon, used Better Than Bouillon



  • Place uncooked rice in a strainer and hold it under cool water, swishing around with a spoon or your hand. Set aside to drain.
  • Drain tomatoes and green chiles, allowing liquid to drain into a 2-cup measure. 
  • Once completely drained, add enough water to reach 2 cups. Set aside.
  • Heat olive oil over medium heat. Add rice to the skillet (you’ll need a skillet that has a lid). Be careful because the wet rice will splatter in the oil. 
  • Saute in the skillet, stirring often, until the rice is golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Remove to a bowl. Set aside.
  • Add chorizo to the same skillet over medium heat. Begin mashing and stirring for about 3 minutes, then add the diced onion. 
  • Stir and continue cooking for about 5-6 minutes until chorizo is fully cooked.
  • Add chicken bouillon and stir. Add tomato liquid, tomato mixture, sauteed rice, black beans and seasonings. Stir.
  • Bring to a light boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, until liquid is absorbed. Don’t open or stir during the 20 minutes.
  • If there is liquid remaining, cover and cook on low for another 3-5 minutes.
