Great textures, combination of items and taste. My daughter especially liked it, as she is into all food that is Mexican or Southwestern. Saw that some on here have mentioned that this recipes is full of carbs. It does have lots of carbs, but they are healthy ones. This recipe contains healthy, complex carbohydrates like beans and avocados, which we all need to have healthy, balanced diets and that provide energy; we should avoid simple carbs, like pretzels, white bread, donuts, lots of types of candies, pies, etc. are the types that turn to pure sugar once eaten and cause weight gain. It is never healthy to completely avoid ALL carbs, just the ones that cause weight gain or can be unhealthful for those with various diseases like diabetes. It is never healthy to avoid any one food group; just make sure you are eating the right type. Read More

I like that this was healthy, easy, and fast to put together, and it wasn't bad, but it could use some more flavor to make it even better. Adding some spice to the beans would be a start, as they were pretty bland. Also topping the bowl with some fresh chopped cilantro would be a good addition. Read More

I just scrambled all ingredients together. I left out the olive oil and only used a half can of the black beans. Topped it with a little extra salsa when serving. Delicious and very simple. Read More

The five star rating isn't because it a special dish...it is good, but the five stars comes from the ease and affordability of the dish. Nice switch up from plain jane eggs. Read More

Fast and tasty. Cooked the black beans for five minutes on the stove and added in fresh cilantro. This would make a great breakfast but I think it made an even butter lunch. Thanks Matt! Read More
