Fiesta Chicken & Yellow Rice

This is a meal I threw together from a few leftovers we had. I love the Mahatma Yellow Rice (in a yellow foil pouch), but realize it is full of MSG so I made my own. It's alot cheaper, too.
4 cups cooked rice
2 T turmeric (this is what makes it yellow-but don't get it on your clothes, counter tops...)
1 T cumin powder
1 tsp cumin seeds (optional)
salt to taste
leftover black beans (about 2 cups)
leftover chicken (or shrimp, or pork) (I had 2 cups shredded chicken with baja citrus seasoning-if you don't have this seasoning by McCormick, just use 2 T chili powder, 1 T cumin, some garlic etc.)
1 can diced tomatoes (the spicy kind would be good)
Throw this all together, heat and sprinkle with cheese, and sour cream.
