Moros (Rice and Beans)

Total price: $0.00 | Price per serving: $


I found this recipe on the /r/frugal subreddit, in this post.

The recipe as written requires an Instant Pot. It should be relatively easy to adapt if you don’t have one. Maybe one day I’ll write that recipe :)


  • 1.5 cups dried black beans

  • 1 green pepper

  • 1 onion

  • 4 cloves garlic

  • 1 TBS tomato paste

  • Oregano to taste

  • 1 bay leaf

  • Cumin to taste

  • 1 packet of concentrated chicken broth

  • 2 cups brown rice

  • Optional: meat of your choice


  • Cook dried beans in four cups of water in the instant pot for 30 minutes

  • While beans are cooking, chop up onion and green pepper

  • Remove beans and strain, reserving bean water

  • Sauté green pepper, onion, and garlic in Instant Pot

  • Add tomato paste

  • Add some oregano, bay leaf and cumin

  • Add chicken broth

  • Add two cups of reserved black bean water and 1.5 cups of water

  • Add two cups of rinsed rice

  • Cook on rice-mode in the Instant Pot for 12 minutes
