    chia's Note:

    got a similar recipe in my email, it reads : "Quick-cooking barley replaces rice in this classic Caribbean combo. Barley is rich in soluble fiber and makes a good whole-grain choice because it is digested slowly, leaving you feeling satisfied longer." as a barley lover i had to try it, and add my own ingredients.i used fresh grown peppers ,tomatoes,and a handful of fresh oregano and basil. enjoy!

      Love barley but I haven't run across the quick-cooking type yet so I just adjusted accordingly and thoroughly enjoyed it combined with black beans. Easy, easy, easy.

      This dish turned out very plain for me. It needed a little more kick, maybe some extra cumin and black pepper.

      Very tasty dish. I realized that my barley was not the quick cook variety. I cooked the veggies added the chicken broth and barley. Cooked the barley for 40 minutes then added the rinsed beans and cooked an additional 10 minutes. Served this with Sue L's Green, White, and Red Enchiladas (#92448) along with a side salad. Thanks for posting.
