      I loved this recipe! I'm a big bean and rice fan, and this really hit the spot. I didn't have a bell pepper, so I left that out. I did add some sliced jalepanos to it for some extra spice. I topped the rice and beans with tortilla chips, low fat sour cream, and reduced-fat cheddar. I will be making this again!

      I just loved this!! I have a great recipe for a black beans/brown rice burrito (from this site) but was looking for something a little different tonight! I used black beans from Basic Black Beans, so I didn't use the seasonings for this recipe, or the green pepper. I mixed some chopped mushrooms into the rice & added salsa, cumin & chili powder--before topping it with the beans. I loved the cheese on top. I also served it with some baked tortilla chips & fat free sour cream; good idea Lingering_Dream! Thanks so much for sharing!!
