Recipe by Fancy Nancy
"I am not claiming this to be an authentic Cuban dish, rather my version of it. I hope that you enjoy. Garnish with chopped green onions, chopped cilantro, lime wedges, and sour cream."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This was wonderful! The store was out of chorizo, so I bought spicy Italian sausage. I had never heard of smoked paprika, so now I have some on hand. I used regular white vinegar instead of red wine vinegar and tossed in some extra red bell peppers that I had on hand. This recipe is a keeper. Hubby wants more meat next time, and now that I know it turned out, I'll play with the veggies and the spices. This was very easy to make, the hard part was the wonderful smell while it was simmering! Hard to wait.
This was great. I accidentally bought plain uncooked chorizo so I had to sauté it first before adding it to the beans. Even without the smoked flavor that would have been added by the smoked chorizo this was still very good and tasty. I can't wait to make it again with the correct type of chorizo. I bet it's going to be amazing.
Pacific Cuban Black Beans & Rice Haiku: "Better than 5 stars. Even my 6 year old loved. WILL make this again!" I halved the recipe for 3 of us, and only swapped chorizo for smoked sausage, and picante sauce for salsa; otherwise, everything else remained as the recipe submitter wrote, and We. Loved. This. Served over brown basmati (would've loved to have had the time to take Fancy Nancy's suggestion of adding cilantro and lime juice to the rice!) and there was not a single bite of leftover.
These beans can also be served as a side dish without the rice. Add more vinegar for extra tang.
Loved this recipe! Whole family couldn't stop eating! Definitely add the cilantro and lime to the rice.
Didn't have everything on hand so omitted celery and bell pepper. Used extra carrots. Used regular paprika. For meat, crumbled in a couple cooked sausage patties and cut up 4 hot dogs. I recommend starting off with less salt and pepper--I used half what was recommended, and it was perfect for us. Even my toddler loved it!
I came across this recipe looking for something to accompany the green plantain I had purchased on impulse (I made tostones with it). Since I had the chorizo and black beans, this looked perfect, and it was! I think this recipe would also work for vegetarian friends if I use vegetable stock, leave out the chorizo and add additional smoked paprika to make up for the lost smokiness of the sausage. I will definitely make this again.
Will definitely make again. I didn't have chorizo on hand so threw in some bacon, fresh cilantro and chili powder as a substitute. Was perfect with grilled pork chops.
