The family enjoyed this recipe so much! For something so simple and inexpensive, it tastes like a million bucks and comfort food all at once! I made it as suggested and it was really great. Gonna check out more of KitchenMistress' recipes.
I was really impressed at how these simple ingredients came together to form such a wonderful delicious meal. The house smelled so good while it was cooking, too! I served mine with shredded cheese and sour cream on top, but it was awesome on it's own as well! Thank You!

I really like this recipe. Very simple yet delicious. I used fresh tomatos rather than canned for mine, just because they were cheaper at the time. I also used dried black beans and added some water with the mashed beans to make the black bean sauce. I found the 1 Tablespoon of salt was a bit too much for me, so I had to add about double the tomatos to tone it down. I didn't really find the saltiness really went down over time, so I think I will just do it to taste next time around. I found the filling also works really well as a burrito stuffing. I added some cilantro/coriander to the rice and it was like an cheap/easy version of chipotle.
I'd never had black beans and rice before, but the description of FAST, EASY & DELICOUS had me curious. Delicious indeed! After reading another review, I toned down the salt, but found that I added it back and found it needed the little extra salt. This recipe was really great, and even the kids liked it. It will be a staple in our house from now on.
