We loved this recipe! I used frozen chopped onions to save time, and went by the recipe exactly. I would add just a touch less water next time, to thicken them up a bit. I served them over Mahatma yellow rice and it was delicious!

This was an extremely good, quick lunch for me and my two young sons! I did not have any of the sazon goya, so I substituted with 2 tsp. cumin, 1 chicken bouillon, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, 1/4 tsp. ground coriander, and 1/4 tsp. dried thyme. Delish!! I'll serve leftovers in tortillas tomorrow. Oh, I almost forgot, I cut up about 3/4 cup tomato and added to the onion/pepper/garlic saute for some extra nutrients!

I loved this! I also used the previous posters substitution for the sazon goya, and used the cider vinegar vs cooking wine, but otherwise followed exactly. So easy, reminded me of a Cuban version of red beans and rice...but done in 25 min vs a few hours! Served over rice, next to sweet corn and grilled chicken. Excellent!

I don even like black beans, but my husband does, so I made these. Wow. Best balck beans ever. I will not go back to refried after these. I used the Sazon because I buy it in big boxes (love that radioactive color) and added about 1/2 TBS of red pepper flakes.

Absolutely delicious! I have made this recipe several times now (using Carmine's seasoning substitutions) and my husband said it was about time I rated it. The whole family comments every time I make it that it is great. The only other black beans and rice I've made came out of a box. This is far superior and takes about the same amount of time to make. We usually serve it over brown rice as a vegetarian main dish but occassionally the guys like to have it with sausage or shrimp added. It's a no-brainer for those nights you want something quick and easy and satisfying.

Such a delicious dish! This is my second attempt at making black beans and rice and this recipe is awesome! I didn't have sazon or fresh garlic so I had to improvise, but it is sooo good.

My dhand ds loved it! Easy to prepare and the note about the Sazon Goya was a wonderful help! Easy to make, and I doubled the recipe so I know we will be having a treat next week from the freezer. Thanks Dawn!
