Recipe Review: Black Beans and Rice with Chicken and Apple Salsa

A healthy and easy recipe with Mexican flavors from Bon Appetit January 2012 using easy to find supermarket ingredients, including canned black beans and rotisserie chicken.  The black beans are cooked with onion, green peppers, garlic, chili powder, coriander, cumin, and chicken broth.  The beans took about twenty minutes to thicken instead of the 8-10 minutes suggested in the recipe.  The green apple salsa made with red onion, lime juice, and cilantro is a cool and refreshing contrast to the hearty beans and rice.
