    Starrynews's Note:

    I saw this prepared on Simply Delicioso with Ingrid Hoffman, "Miami Nights" episode. Delicious and filling! This prepares a lot, so you'll want to use a big pot - I like to use my 5-quart (sorry, international 'Zaar friends, I don't know why we still use that type of measurement). Sometimes I add a little bit of pepperjack cheese just before serving, which gives it an extra little "kick" in flavor!

      I thought these were delicious! I cut the recipe in half. Instead of canned beans I soaked dried beans over night. I had to add about a cup more of water. I also chopped a couple of jalapeno peppers and added them to the pot. It had a nice kick to it. I did not find the taste vinegary at all and in fact added red wine vinegar to my portion. Thanks for sharing.

      Delicious rice! Knew we would like as it has bay leaf and apple cider vinegar in it, nice flavor combination, not too spicy. Served with by Chocolatl. Thanks for sharing. Made for Culinary Quest 2014.

      This was great with a little kick of heat! I was running behind time for a dinner party, so I tried something a bit different. I put the rice in a rice cooker, with chicken stock at as the liquid. I topped the uncooked rice with the rinsed black beans, then started the rice cooker. Then cooked the veggies as directed and added the tomatoes. I just cooked that up and when the rice was done, I added the two together. It worked great!
