Whenever I see "Quick" in a recipe name, I know it means "canned ingredients", which means "sodium bomb" - especially since this recipe says not to drain and rinse the beans!. You're better off taking the time to soak and boil dried beans and use regular (not instant) brown rice and fresh tomatoes. If you can't do that, at least look for reduced-sodium or no-salt-added canned beans and tomatoes.
For more flavor, add ground black pepper or better yet, white pepper (it's hotter than black, be forewarned!), cumin, a pinch of cayenne if you like things spicy, and fresh cilantro. Even a packet of (low sodium!) Sazon will help. Also, saute a thinly sliced celery stalk with the onion and use fresh garlic instead of powdered.
