1 cup 250 ml   Rice, cooked
2 cups 500 ml   Black Beans
2   Tomatoes, diced
1   Jalapeno pepper, diced

1. In a medium skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat. Finely dice the onion, and stir into the pan. Add the cooked rice and black beans to the pan and stir to combine. Stir in the diced tomatoes, jalapenos, along with the spices. Stir the mixture and allow to cook for about 5 minutes.
