8 meal sized servings


1 cups brown rice
2 cups water
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
1 Tbl olive oil
1 chicken breast, precooked and diced
2 small tomatoes, diced
1 8 oz can corn, drained
1 14 oz can black beans, NOT drained
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 Tbl cumin
1/2 Tbl turmeric
1 tsp paprika

Bring 2 cups water to a boil. Stir in rice, reduce heat to low, and cover. Simmer about 45 minutes.

When rice has about 10 minutes left, begin cooking remaining items.

In a large wok, heat olive oil and saute onion and bell pepper over medium heat, until tender. Stir in chicken, corn, beans with juice, tomatoes, and dry seasonings.

When rice is finished cooking, stir into wok along with cilantro.

Allow to sit cooking for about 15 minutes, flipping entire mixture every few minutes, until any excess liquid has evaporated.
