Loved it! I used fresh peppers & onions vs. frozen and added chopped fresh cilantro as well. I also used "Red Enchilada Sauce" (from this site). Tasty wrapped with a warm tortilla, or plain with cheese on top. A keeper, thanks Jaime!!

I liked the recipe, but it seemed to be missing something for me. I added a can of corn and a can of diced tomatoes with it.

delicious and so easy to make. I don't like peppers or onions so instead I added some canned corn. It was very flavorful- I think the kind of enchilada sauce used might make the difference. I used old el paso "hot" enchilada sauce. I still cant believe how easy it was.

Is it possible to use fresh instead of frozen green bell peppers and onions? YES!

Hmmmm...I really wanted to rate this higher, but the recipe made as written, in my opinion just did not have enough flavor. I used fresh veggies and sauteed them in olive oil. I had to add quite a bit of salt to acheive the flavor I like, and I served this in a warmed tortilla with shredded cheese like the previous reviewer suggested. I used store bought enchilada sauce, which I really like, but I'm wondering if I should have gone with homemade. I doubt it would have made that much of a difference. As far as being quick and inexpensive, it's deserving of all 5 stars, but the taste lacked something to be desired. I served this with picante sauce on the side. Maybe adding some more spices to the vegetables while their cooking would help. Glad I gave it a shot.

Suggestions: Saute rice in oil, add 1 package sazon and 2 tablespoon tomato (or the "red") sofrito, 1 tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro, 1 tsp chopped garlic, stir around for a minute then add liquid (preferably chicken broth). Keep an eye on it and when it starts to thicken up, add the "drained" and "rinsed" (very important) black beans.

Very easy and delicous recipe! I served it with the Cajun Spiced Chicken (also found on allrecipes.com)When I had put the sauce over the rice, I put cheddar chees on the top - very good!

I took the suggestion of serving this with tortillas and it was extra delicious. I also took the liberty of adding garlic to the fresh peppers/onion saute. To finish, I used homemade enchilada sauce (courtesy of my mother-in-law), added some leftover shredded grilled chicken, and topped it off with sour cream and shredded cheese. Overall, a great meal and I look forward to the leftovers for tomorrow's lunch!
