This felt like a cross between spaghetti and chili. Pretty good - nothing to knock my socks off but a decent little meal, and something good for when I want a meatless day. I have no Adobo seasoning and made my own. I found a variety of recipes so I just made up an easy combination similar to them, except using less salt. (Even so, salty stuff, but way less than most recipes had.) I made up a batch using 1 T. salt, 1 T. onion powder, 1 T. garlic powder, 1 T. pepper, 1/2 T. oregano and 1 t. chili powder. I've made this twice now, and have made it as is, except for the reduced salt, and also I think 1-2/3 cup rice is plenty. (Side note that for something like this or salad, the beans really should be drained & rinsed, which also reduces the sodium.)(It also does say "American-style" meaning it can be anything it likes. Also not the first time Mexican & Italian has been mixed - even the Adobo has oregano!)
