“I keep black beans on hand, and when I'm exhausted and don't feel like cooking for my family, I pull out this recipe. So easy to remember, make it once, and it's in your head forever!” - by Redhead

- Bring rice and water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Allow rice to stand covered for about 10 minutes.
- Mix salsa with black beans in a microwave-safe bowl, and cook in microwave oven on high until hot, about 2 minutes; stir once or twice during heating.
- Divide cooked rice into individual serving bowls.
- Top the rice with black bean mixture, chicken strips, and Cheddar cheese; garnish with fresh cilantro and dollops of sour cream.

"Very good, cheap & easy! I play softball on the weeknights so I need something I can whip up fast after work...this works! I boil my chicken in my yummy spices & then shred it. Instead of cooking the ..." See moresalsa/beans in the microwave, I bring them to a boil in a pot & then throw in the chicken & let it all simmer together - more flavor gets into the chicken & blends better, I think. Like another reviewer, I did add more salsa (almost double) but thats just my taste preference...also I throw in a little cayenne for an extra kick! Very good & very easy!"
