Fresh lime and coconut add plenty of zing to this black beans and rice dish.

Ingredients

1
cup sweetened flaked coconut
1-1/2 cups chicken broth
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
3
tablespoons butter, divided
1-1/4 cups uncooked basmati rice
1
small onion, chopped
1
poblano pepper, divided
2
(15-ounce)cans black beans, drained and rinsed
2
teaspoons chili powder
1
teaspoon ground cumin
1
lime
2
green onions, thinly sliced
1/2
chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350° F . Bake coconut in a single layer on a baking sheet 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted.
  • 2 Bring broth, next 2 ingredients, 2 tablespoons butter, and 1 cup water to a boil in a 2-quart saucepan. Stir in rice. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook 15 to 20 minutes or until rice is tender and water is absorbed.
  • 3 Meanwhile, melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; add onion and poblano pepper, and sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in black beans, chili powder, cumin, and 3/4 cup water. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes.
  • 4 Grate zest from lime, avoiding pale bitter pith, into a bowl; squeeze juice from lime into bowl.
  • 5 Fluff rice with a fork. Fold lime zest and juice, coconut, green onions, and cilantro into hot cooked rice. Serve bean mixture over rice with desired toppings.
