Sweet and Spicy Black Beans and Rice

This recipe is weird.  At first I didn't love it, but it grew on me and grew on me until some days I end up craving it.  
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 cup Onion, Diced
1 cup Red Pepper, Diced
3 cloves Garlic, Minced
1 Tablespoon Cumin
4 cups Cooked Black Beans
½ teaspoons Salt
3 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
15 ounces, weight Canned Pineapple Tidbits, In Juice, Drained, Juice Reserved
1 cup Mango, Diced
3 cups Cooked Brown Rice

Chopped Cilantro
Sour Cream Or Yogurt
Hot Sauce Or Red Pepper Flakes

Heat oil over medium heat in large saucepan. Add onions and red pepper. Saute until soft. Add garlic. Saute one minute more. Add cumin, beans, salt, vinegar, and pineapple juice. Bring to a gentle simmer, and continue to simmer over medium low heat to reduce sauce, about 10-15 minutes. Then, stir in pineapple and mango. Continue to simmer until fruit is warmed, 2-3 minutes.

Serve over cooked brown rice. Sprinkle with cilantro and spoon sour cream or yogurt on top. Add hot sauce or red pepper flakes if you like some heat.
