I made this yesterday, and thought it was pretty delicious. I used regular white rice instead of instant, since that's what we had on hand, and I pulled a can of diced tomatoes that actually already had garlic, oregano, and basil in it so it was an easy preparation. I also used a red onion, since that's all I had on hand, but it was still great. A lot of people say that the flavor is a little bland, which I agree, but I have a weird enjoying of certain types of bland food, so it didn't bother me much. I did add a packet of Sazon seasoning, 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper and a dash of cumin, though, but I think 1/4 tsp was a little too much. I didn't actually need to add more liquid like others had to, so I guess that just depends on if your tomatoes and black beans are especially watery or not.
