"A quick and easy meal with protein from the black beans and couscous. You will also love the sweet pineapple with the spice from the taco seasoning. Depending on how much juice was with your pineapple, you may need to add more water to the couscous if it looks like it needs it."

This was surprisingly good given the minimal effort involved. I used quinoa instead of couscous, cooked in a combination of pineapple juice and vegetable broth. I also used home-blended taco seasoning. My husband didn't love it, but I was happy to bring it for my lunch.
Although the picture is not too appealing, I like the flavors of this recipe, the protein from the black beans and the tang of the pineapple. I added a can of chick peas as well as the black beans, and I had to add more taco seasoning, liquid and salt because of that. I mixed it all together rather than putting the beans/pineapple on top, so that it was easy to divide up and refrigerate for later. Good for lunch with a piece of fruit on the side.
