Just reading this recipe, I knew it would need some adjusting, in part because I always cook with brown rice. My cook time was around 40 min on the rice. I used 1/2 the beans v-- 1 can black beans + 3/4 c. rice brought the proportions relatively even. Also used 1 Tbsp oil rather than 1 tsp & added a little lime juice toward the end. The spice level was OK for my 2 year-old and 8 month old twins. If you like spicy foods, I recommend additional cayenne. The 2nd time making, added diced tomatoes, a bay leaf, & included both red & black beans, which was more well-received than the original recipe.
