  1. Warm the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onion and cook, stirring frequently, until it becomes tender. Incorporate the beans, tomatoes, oregano, and garlic powder, and bring the mixture to a boil.
  2. Mix in the rice, then cover the saucepan. Lower the heat and let it simmer for 5 minutes. Take the saucepan off the heat and allow it to sit, covered, for an additional 5 minutes before serving.


  • – For added flavor, consider adding a squeeze of fresh lime juice before serving.
    – This dish pairs well with a side of avocado or a dollop of sour cream.
    – Adjust the cayenne pepper to your preferred level of spiciness.
