Reviews for Black Beans with Bell Peppers & Rice
"This meal was a very quick,cheap, and easy to put together. That was the plus about it. But for my family's preference we did not prefer this as a meal. My husband and I agreed it needed more flavor. We added hot sauce to it and that made it very delicious. My husband also thinks this would be great with cooked steak chopped up in it."
"This was yummy! I did not have fresh cilantro so I added extra cumin, oregano and salt."
