uncooked white rice
1 1/2 cups
low sodium, low fat vegetable broth
3 1/2 cups
canned black beans, drained
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.
Boring! I made it per the recipe, tasted it, and added cilantro, and a can Rold Gold Mexican Fiesta Tomatoes, much better. Thanks anyway Robyn ;)
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.
Great recipe! The only addition I made was some diced tomatos and extra garlic. Great tortilla filling! Even my meat-eater hubby loved it!
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.
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)
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.
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!
