Coconut Rice with Black Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
I thought this was okay when I followed the recipe. I took some suggestions from the reviews. I used more coconut milk, less water, some chicken bouillon, minced garlic, and salt and pepper. My husband and I were not displeased but it was not our favorite thing ever. A few days later, I decided to use up the leftovers, but I wanted to work with some new flavors. I heated a little olive oil in a fry pan and sauteed 2 cloves of garlic for a bit. Next, I added a small can of green chiles, 1 tsp cumin, and more salt and pepper. After heating that through I added the leftover rice and beans. I had a little bit of pork roast leftovers as well so i chopped it into bite sizes and threw it in and cooked over medium heat until it was all heated through. We loved it! The green chiles broadened the flavor but kept that subtle sweetness that I liked about the recipe.
