This is the best rice and beans recipe I have ever had. My whole family enjoyed it so much that we made it again the next day!! The only alteration I made was adding more cayenne pepper to add a little more spice!!!

I made this today for lunch. It was very good. A little different than traditional black beans and brown rice. In fact, I steped up the brown rice by changing the mix to 1 cup brown rice, 1 cup Quinoa, and 1 cup Farro cooked in better than bullion vegetable broth.. The different grains blended together very well and tasted great by themselves . I will be making this again and again! Bobby

This was very good following the recipe exactly as written. The leftovers were great the next day too. I think the next time I make this I will use the leftovers either as a topping on tacos or add to burritos since it was so flavorful.

I've made this recipe several times since it was originally published. I vary the ingredients with what I have on hand, and it always turns out delicious! This has become one of my go to healthy meals for busy nights.

Delicious, easy & healthy. It's great with a dollop of sour cream on top.

Wow, was this surprisingly flavorful! I only had 1 can of beans, but it still seemed to work great. Also added a few dashes of tabasco sauce because I thought it'd be bland but it was really awesome. (Add some cilantro and lime to the rice and you've got a restaurant dish!)

it was excellent! I would just put a few less beans in next time. It's good served in a wrap as well!
