This recipe was excellent. However, I did follow other's advice. I added 1 can tomatoes w/chiles, 1 can of corn, 1 can of beans, 2tsp cumin, 2 tsp tumeric, splash of lime, chicken broth. This will definitely be added to my menu. Read More

For a low fat recipe, I think this is great. it does need a little "spicing up," but nothing major. After adding the black beans, I added 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/8 tsp paprika, and a pinch of cayenne pepper. I make this recipe at least every other week. A great way to get a lot of fiber and protein without a lot of fat and carbs. Read More

Great recipe! The only addition I made was some diced tomatos and extra garlic. Great tortilla filling! Even my meat-eater hubby loved it! Read More

This was delicious! Instead of vegetable broth I used a can of chicken broth. Also doubled the garlic and added a can of Italian style stewed tomatoes with juice and a small can of corn, drained. The cumin and cayenne pepper went together well. Not bland at all with the extra additions. Read More

Good recipe!! I didn't have enough beans, so I used 1 1/2 cups frozen corn to make up the difference. Also, I added a bunch of whole green olives with pimientos and I highly recommend that!! And, I added lots of lemon juice, more cayenne, and more cumin.... I actually added too much cayenne but today it had toned down a bit and the flavors had melded so it was even better! I think this would only be 3 stars without the adjustments, and what made it into five stars is that it tastes FABULOUS with cottage cheese! I don't mean that you should mix it in with the beans and rice, just put some on your plate and then get a bit of cottage cheese on your fork along with the beans and rice for each bite. I think the cottage cheese tastes so great with it because of the difference between hot and cold and spicy and mild. Definitely try the cottage cheese! :o) Read More

I am rating the recipe as written 4-stars - but with a few minor changes it quickly becomes a 5-star recipe! I made the following changes: 1 tsp granulated garlic instead of 2 cloves (non in the house), chicken broth instead of veggie, 2 tsp cumin, only 1 can of black beans, plus added 1 can of corn (drained) and 1 can of Rotel tomatoes (undrained). My husband loved it and has asked that it be added to our menu on a regular basis. We used it as a burrito filling, a quesadilla filling, and a stand-alone dish. I also added extra chicken broth to some of the leftovers and made it into soup. The mixture would also be good on top of nachos or combined with chicken and cheese to make a casserole. Cheese and/or sour cream are good compliments. Next time, I will lower the cayenne to 1/8 tsp (the Rotel adds enough heat for my taste) and use 2 cans of beans (black, pinto, and kidney would all work well in this dish). Read More

Very good! We really enjoyed this with our Carnitas. I used chicken broth rather than vegetable broth and added chopped fresh tomato and minced fresh jalapeno in with the beans. Pleasantly seasoned subtle flavor and just perfect as a side dish to Mexican entrees. Read More

This recipe was VERY disappointing! I ended up adding an extra cup of broth because the rice wasn't finished cooking yet. My husband and I love spices, and this was extremely bland, despite the fact that I added about three times the amount of spices to it. The only way I'll make this recipe again is if I'm in a hurry and have nothing else to make! Read More
