A Cuban-style dish of flavorful white rice cooked with black beans and chorizo.

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


Units Scale

2 cups white long-grained rice
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can diced tomatoes with chilies
1 large white onion
4 large cloves of garlic
A pinch of ground oregano
1 large bay leaf
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 long link of chorizo
1 teaspoon salt


In a sauté pan, cook chorizo until heated through.
Add onion, garlic, and oregano and sauté until the onion is softened.
Add the vegetable or chicken stock, the rice, the bay leaf, and the salt.
Cover the pot, place it over medium heat until it comes to a boil, stir to prevent sticking to the bottom of the pot, and keep cooking over low heat, until the rice looks completely dry.
This should take from 10 to 15 minutes. Stir again, remove from heat and let cool before serving.
