Step 1

Cook rice according to package instructions or your favorite method. White rice usually takes about 20 minutes to cook. (Or do like I did this time and use cooked rice to cut the preparation time.)

Step 2

Heat oil in a large skillet on medium high. Sauté onions and bell peppers for 3-4 minutes, until just beginning to soften, then add garlic and sauté a minute more. Add the black beans, vinegar and Tabasco or cayenne. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Stir in rice and oregano. Add salt and pepper to taste.
