Football Watchin': UGA vs. Alabama

I do not want to post this recipe. I am actually very fond of this meal - but we lost terribly. Our yet-to-be-attained "undefeated season" is once again spoiled. The object of our affection lost forever. My "Ode to a Grecian Urn" is in tact and I am sad. So, after a brief repose, I am back with my dish that was served on the day of the UGA/Alabama game. And that's all I have to say about that. Very simple, kid friendly and easy - here ya go -

Bulldog Blackout Beans and Rice

3 cups black beans, either soaked and cooked or canned (drained)

2 cups cooked rice pilaf

1/2 cup beef or chicken broth

1 can diced tomatoes

2 cups cooked white meat chicken or turkey

1/2 tsp curry powder

1-2 tablespoons of cumin powder

Salt and pepper to taste

1. All of the ingredients in this dish are already cooked. All you really have to do is put them all in a big pot, stir well and bring to a simmer. Simmer just long enough for all of the flavors to meld - and eat it!

(If you don't have rice pilaf, but want to use plain cooked rice instead, simply saute 1/2 cup of chopped onions in a little olive oil in your pot before you add the rest of the ingredients - the key is that there must be onions somewhere in this dish)
