This recipe has become a staple in my house. As is, it makes a great side dish. It is also very versatile. I sometimes substitute red beans for black beans. My favorite variation is 15 oz black beans, 15 oz corn and 10 oz tomatoes and chili peppers instead of just black beans. I also add 1/4 tsp black pepper. I like to substitute chicken broth for the vegetable broth. Add some chicken strips (Fajita style) and wrap in a tortilla for a nice meal. I found that the garlic may brown too much when saute'd with the onion right away so I saute the onion 2 minutes, the garlic 2 minutes and then follow the recipe from there on. I found that a 3 quart saucepan is the perfect size for this recipe. Best of all, it re-heats great in the microwave so it makes for a quick meal the next day.
