An unusually good recipe! Originally on the tasteofcuba.com web site but have taken the liberty of tweaking a bit here and there.

- 1⁄4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

This was one of my favorite meals that we've made from Recipezaar recipes. We did make some changes. We used about 10" of Conecuh sausage instead of chorizo. We diced it so that it was nice and small. We used a whole mango. We did not use oregano or a bay leaf. Instead, we used 1t of coriander. The best part is that we used coconut milk in place of water (a whole can). We mixed everything as directed (sans crushed red pepper), but added the black beans to the rice so that it made a bed of rice and black beans to smother with the sauce. It was sooooooooooo good. I can't wait to eat the leftovers tomorrow.
All I could taste was oregano. it overpowered the whole dish. Will not make again :-(
