QUICK, EASY AND DELICIOUS!! I made it this morning before work and packed it for my lunch. I didn't taste it first. What a pleasant surprise. Good comfort food. Not too spicy. The only thing I did different was to add bell peppers. Thanks Maine-iac!!

This was VERY good! Okay, the PIMIENTOS MADE THIS DISH!!! I was a little reluctant to dump in the whole 4 oz jar, but there it went, and WOW! Added vibrant color and just the kick it needed. I will save this recipe and make it again!

This was pretty good. I had to substitute roasted red peppers for the pimientos as someone else had suggested since I didn't have any & it turned out good! I couldn't get my little ones to eat it, but my older two ate it with little complaint. I will keep this one to use on a night when there are no kids to feed. Thanks for posting!

Delicious. I forgot to put in the 2nd can of black beans, so my final dish was a little light on the beans, but it was good all the same. Used a rice cooker for the rice, so I skipped the chicken broth. Perfect combination of flavors, will definitely make again.

This was definitely a yummy dish! I cheated and used canned chicken (I needed to clear out the cupboard) and it still turned out very tasty! Thanks for the recipe!

Excellent, easy and tasty. And yes, the balsamic vinegar really makes the dish. Black bean dishes are great but their flavorings tend to be predictable; this "tangy" recipe will go into my "favorites" cookbook! (I'm also going to triple the recipe and freeze it so dbf can take it to work...) A few small changes: I drained and rinsed the black beans to reduce the sodium and I cooked the rice in water instead of broth, also to reduce the sodium. And I used Basmati Brown rice, which has a very nice flavor on its own and was great with this dish. I also made some steamed broccoli with lemon juice and altogether it was an attractive and healthy meal. Thanks, Maine-iac, for a delicious recipe!

I make this all the time, and several people have asked for the recipe. It's good with either pimientos as written or red bell pepper as a substitute. I drained the beans to make sure the mixture wasn't too watery. We like a lot of heat, so I added more cayenne pepper too. It's a very colorful, comforting dish. Just as good the next day.

Good recipe! I only used half the spices and also only one can of black beans. If you can find the pimentos, I suggest getting them because they add beautiful color to this dish! Thanks!
