I know what you're thinking, black beans and rice, kind of plain, right? But not this recipe--from Goya. My husband thought, "Ok, beans and rice, I already love those, what can be so different about this recipe?" He had to eat his words, along with the beans and rice, lol. With the addition of a few simple things, wow, these are delicious! And so simple, a really quick side dish.

Very easy recipe. Tastes even better when made a day ahead and reheated.

Easy to make and tastes great! Cooking for picky people is hard, but this recipe left them asking for more. Nice as is or thicken and eat in tortillas with cheddar. Yum!
