1. Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in 3-qt. saucepan over medium heat and cook 1/2 cup onion, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add rice and cook, stirring frequently, until rice is golden, about 2 minutes. Add water and 1/2 Knorr® Chicken flavor Bouillon Cube and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer covered until rice is tender, about 45 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, heat remaining 2 Tbsp. oil in 2-qt. saucepan over medium heat and cook remaining 1/2 cup onion with green pepper, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until beans are tender, about 12 minutes.

3. Garnish, if desired, with cilantro.

Tip: Try substituting the chicken bouillon cube with 1 Tbsp. powdered Knorr® Chicken flavor Bouillon, divided; stirring half in with the rice and the remaining half in with the beans.
