I made this today and my KIDS even like it! Laughing That is saying a lot! It is soooo good!

2 cups dried black beans
4-5 garlic cloves, chopped (or 3 teasp. minced garlic)
1-2 large red peppers, chopped
1 cup chopped cilantro (I use more)
4 cups cooked rice
2 tsp. oil
Lime juice to garnish

After picking through beans, place in stock pot and cover with 2 inches of water. Bring to a boil, boil hard for 2 minutes, then cover, turn off heat, and let sit for 1 hour.

Drain beans then return to pot with 8 1/2 cups water. Add the garlic, half the red pepper, and 1/4 cup cilantro. Bring to a boil, then cover partially and adjust heat to simmer. Gently cook for 1 1/2 hours. Then stir in 2 teasp. salt and cook another 15 minutes. Drain back into collander.

Put oil in pot and set over med-high heat. When oil is hot, add remaining red pepper and stir fry until pepper is the tenderness you like. (About 4 minutes for me.) Add remaining cilantro, stir for a minute, then add beans. Stir for 2 minutes, breaking up any clumps, then add rice, once again stirring to break up clumps. Add salt and pepper to taste and stir until it's heated through.

Sprinkle with lime juice to taste.

Oh. My. Goodness.

Sparrow's Song

Love divine has seen and counted
Every tear it caused to fall;
And the storm which Love appointed
Was its choicest gift of all...

"Getting Rid of Gunk" ... "No one makes a Christian do devotions. I can decide freely how much effort I spend maintaining my soul. Am I as concerned about maintaining an attractive, pure witness as I am a clean pool? Sometimes not. Resting on yesterday's devotions or last Sunday's sermon can foul my soul as surely as my neglect spoils my pool."
