Black Beans and Rice

I was looking for something to go along with my Cuban Pork Chops and this looked like it would go with it perfectly.  I wasn't wrong.  But this black beans and rice would be good with many other things as well.  It was very easy to put togther as well.

You probably have all of these things in your pantry.
Add 2 cups broth.  You can use either vegetable or chicken
1 cup rice. Not instant
Drain and rinse a can of black beans
Chop one medium onion
Cook the onion in 2 Tablespoons olive oil and add 1 teaspoon cumin.
Add a little salt
Add the black beans to the skillet with the onions.
Drain a small can of whole kernel corn.
Add garlic either a clove or some garlic powder.
Add 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
When the broth starts boiling on the stove.
Add the rice.  Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes until the liquid is gone.
Then add the rice to the bean mixture in the skillet.
Mix well.
It was a great side dish for the Cuban pork chops.
