Another cold weather recipe!  This one-pot wonder is easy to throw together at the end of the day with whatever you have and like.  The spicier you make it the more it warms you up!

  • 1 chicken breast, and/or ham, chorizo or any meat, diced (or nomeat for a veggie meal)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 green capsicum, diced
  • 1 mildly hot pepper (eg jalapeno), seeded and diced
  • 1 cup uncooked white or brown rice
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 can diced tomato
  • Seasonings added to taste:
  • cumin, cayenne, chilli powder,
    red pepper flakes, hot sauce,
         salt, pepper
  • 2 cans of black beans or other beans, drained

Mix all ingredients together, except beans in a large skillet or small stock pan.  Cover and bring to a boil then reduce heat and cook until rice is done.  Add beans and heat through.

I like to add lime juice and fresh coriander at the end of cooking for a bit of a lift.  It could be served with sour cream to cool the heat.
