As a bachelor with a small budget for food and not a lot of time to cook extravagant meals, this has become one of my favorite meals. The stewed tomatoes make this dish. Last night I tried putting my own spin on it along with the advice from other reviewers; I used 2 cans of beans, 2 cloves of fresh garlic to replace the powder, 1/2 tsp cumin, a pinch of chili powder, a bit of chicken broth (1 cup was too liquidy, I had to drain some) and I added about 1/4 cup frozen corn and a small can of green chiles. I also cooked the rice seperately and did not mix in with the rest until it was on my plate as I do with most rice dishes. It turned out really good, but if I use 2 cans of black means again I will also use 2 cans of stewed tomatoes and probably will sautee a jalepeno to give it some more kick. This is a truly guilt-free meal as it is cheap, healthy, and vegetarian along with being actually very delicious.
