    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
    2. In a saucepan bring the water to the boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 40 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile, pour beans into a 2 litre casserole. Sprinkle with chillies, cumin, chilli powder, salt and black pepper.

    Note:

    Black turtle beans, or simply 'black beans' for short, are especially common in Latin American cuisine. High in fibre and packed with nutrients, they're a healthy addition to any dish. If you can't find tinned black beans, use dried.

    Tried with dried black beans and found it quite dry but the flavours were good - 17 Jan 2015
