This could also be made using chicken breast or beef. Adjust all ingredient amounts to taste, this complete recipe may be doubled. I also add in some The Best Creole/Cajun Seasoning Mix just to kick the flavor up even more! Use instant rice only for this recipe.

This is very good! Had 2 pounds of pork loin I wanted to use in a stew or casserole . I also had the soup, black beans and salsa. Only thing I changed was to substitute canned jalapenos for the chili peppers. This was flavorful and because the pork/black bean combination is cuban style it definetly was a hit. Cream soups do add a creaminess to a stew or casserole with out the risk of scorching. And can be added at the beginning of a recipe which is handy when you are using a slow cooker or just slow baking in the oven. I will be making this again for sure.
