Black beans and rice cooked together with spices are one of the best side dishes to accompany any meal! I found this recipe while browsing the internet and it is so good!

  2. After 5 minutes, add apple cider vinegar and stir. Add 2-3 cups of already cooked white rice (at room temperature) and mix well. Cook until all is absorbed (about 10-15 minutes).

good recipe, too much tomato sauce. I will make this again but eliminate the tomato sauce completely. Also the recipe does not indicate how much apple cider vinegar to use, so I used a tablespoon.

Tasty & relatively quick to pull together. Decided to make it with broth - felt like that way the sofrito flavors were nice and bright. Found the original recipe online - you should only use a drizzle of the apple cider vinegar.

Fantastic recipe, the person that said the beer overpowered the dish was right, so I cut it back to 1/2 cup, still a bit much, next time i will go 1/4 cup. Over all great dish. Thanks for posting it.
