Wonderful! I agree with one of the reviewers who gave this high marks for adaptability. Served it in a bowl. Delightfully different, satisfying and easy. Can't wait to go after the leftovers tomorrow.

I made this last night for supper and it was terrific! We had worked out all afternoon in the yard and I needed something fast and able to utilize what I had on hand. Today is Thanksgiving and there was no way I was going to the store last night! I used one cup of salsa and 2 cups of water. Used one teaspoon of Cajun seasoning and one teaspoon garlic, one-half teaspoon salt. No green onions in the fridge. The only step I did differently was to wait until the end to add the black beans. We ate it with a simple green salad on the side. It was quite filling! Daydasa, thank you for sharing your recipe! I will be making often!
