What great flavor from such a simple recipe! I've made this several times and this is now a staple in our house. I've served it as a side dish and as a vegetarian main dish. I had no problems with the recipe being too "soupy". I had problems only once, when I drained the black beans and the dish turned out too dry.
Made just the black bean portion of this for DH's birthday dinner tonight - excellent! Since I was only doing beans and not rice, I backed off on the cinnamon, and put in some chipotle pepper powder rather than mild chili powder. Oh, and didn't have an onion, so added a bit of onion powder. Brought to a boil and then simmered until the canned beans were tender. Really delicious - DH LOVED it! Thanks for an excellent recipe!
I found this dish too "soupy" (with the canned bean liquid) and the cinnamon and balsamic vinegar gave it kind of an odd taste.
My husband said ... "This was awewome!" Even the kids liked it. Made it with brown rice and enjoyed it very much.
Wow, this was perfect. I was craving something south of the border, spicy and vegetarian...and this was it. We had all the ingredients, I threw in some frozen corn as well, then added too much pico pica sauce (I think that's what it's called). But it was still amazing, definately a keeper!
My family and friends love these. Only thing I do different is use dried beans. We love the flavor. Served with brown rice and it is filling and great!
I love this recipe! I have made it many times, but I do not include the liquid from the can of beans. This is so simple, and I have been using this recipe for years, including when I was living in China, and I was lucky enough to find balsamic vinegar on one of my shopping trips. Thank you for posting this recipe so long ago!
A great week-day meal. I drained and rinsed the black beans cause otherwise I find it too salty. Got the liquid by adding a can of peeled tomatoes. Followed the tip from other reviewers of cutting the oregano in half. For hot sauce I used "Sambal Tomaat", homemade. The consistency was just right, not too soupy, nor too dry. Next time I'll try to add some raisins to the bean mixture.
Thanks for posting.
This is delicious. I was leary of the cinnamon, but it is fine in this dish. There wasn't a problem with too much liquid because the directions call for you to simmer the beans, tomatoes, etc. This is a keeper! Thanks!
