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 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 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'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.
