Rice and Black Beans with Corn (can be made vegan/vegitarian friendly)

I decided to tweak my usual crock pot recipe because I had some pasta that I made mid-week still in there.

4 cups of stock (I used stock I made boiling chicken thighs and onions)
2 cans of black beans, rinsed OR you could use a bag of black beans
Adobo, to taste
2 tsp of Chili powder
1/2 cup of salsa
2 cups of long grain rice (not instant rice)
one bag of frozen corn
1/2 a can of coconut water (can be found in the ethnic food section at your grocery store)

1) bring stock to a boil
2) add beans, and allow to cook for 30 mins on medium heat
3) add your seasonings (salsa, Adobo, and Chili Powder), allow to simmer for 10 mins
4) add your rice, and cook that according to the package directions
5) add your bag of frozen corn along with the coconut water
6) simmer for an additional 25 mins. on medium heat
Enjoy! Usually makes about 6-8 servings depends on how you use it (side dish or main dish)
I have some in a big freezer bag right now. I plan to use it to make a "veggie" quesadilla (sp).
I served it alongside some enchilada-esque casserole I made with a little extra cheese on top.
