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.
OK, so I'm a bit colorblind - red kidney beans instead of black and poblano pepper instead of green pepper. But nevertheless, it was super tasty! Will be making this again, maybe with the right colors!! made for Culinary Quest 2014
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 http://www.food.com/recipe/corvina-a-la-chorillana-peruvian-fish-in-spicy-tomato-sauce-454713 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!
Excellent and going into my best-of-the-best cookbook! I halved the recipe and it still made a ton! The flavor is absolutely delicious. Perfect combination of everything!
I made this recipe for dinner last night. I was very tired from working all day and this was the perfect meal when you want something really good with very little effort. It makes a ton, so we can enjoy it again for lunches etc, which is also really nice. I loved the recipe made as directed, while DH enjoyed his more with the addition of shredded cheddar cheese to his helping. Either way was good. I used Kroger brand salsa style fire roasted tomatoes, because that is what I had on hand, and they worked out really well undrained because they were already in puree form. I think I would use them again. I only had 3 cans of black beans on hand, so I used pinto beans for the fourth can, which also worked out fine. I was generous with my tablespoon of cumin. I used red bell peppers. I have already saved this into my keeper file. Thanks for posting!
Very yummy! I scaled it down to use 1 can of black beans and thoroughly enjoyed this dish. Served with guacamole and fried plantain. Thanks!
Delicious hearty one-pot meal! I used brown rice and it was perfect with the beans and spicy tomatoes. Great meatless meal easily made with staple ingredients - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT9, The Apron String Travelers
A new favorite! I tried this because I saw it in Annacia's 'Best of 2012' cookbook and it was incredible. Based on Maito's review, I only used three cans of beans instead of four which was perfect for us. I also substituted chicken broth for the water. Great recipe!
Delicious. I halved the recipe and used two cups of water. It still made a ton so I get to enjoy leftovers tonight!
