Black Beans, Chicken and Rice

This is another new recipe we have tried.  Everyone loved it and the kids even wanted to take the leftovers for lunch.  We doubled it and it was perfect for us to be filled up and then we had enough leftovers for all of the kids.  The recipe says it is 4 servings.  This is also another fast meal to fix.  Very good!

2 tsp vegetable oil
1 cup uncooked regular long-grain white rice
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
2 cups frozen bell pepper and onion stir-gry, coursely chopped
1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained, rinsed
1 3/4 cups porogresso chicken broth
2 T water
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.  Cook and stir rice, cumin and chili powder in oil 1 minute.  Stir in all remaining ingredients except cheese.  Heat to boiling, reduce heat; cover and simmer 15 to 18 minutes, stirring occasionally, until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.

Remove skillet from heat.  Uncover; fluff mixture with fork.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Cover; let stand 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted before serving.
