While rice is cooking, place beans in another pan. Bring beans, 2 cups of water, ½ of the onion, ½ of the pepper, ½ of the garlic, 1/4 teaspoon of chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon of cumin to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Allow beans to cook until liquid is cooked down and thickened and beans are very soft.
