This recipe makes absolutely heaps and would be brilliant for a potluck or the like. I found that there was a lot of liquid and it was almost soupy in nature. Not sure if it was meant to be that way. Tastes great and I really enjoyed this meal.

Wonderful and easy. With a couple of little adjustments this would be 5 star for sure. I would reduce the water by about 1/2 cup and would add some more spices. For us the beans were a little bland, even though I added some chili powder. The method of cooking and cook time were perfect so I will be using this recipe again. Thank you.

Watery and slightly bitter. Perhaps it was the beans I used. I never have any luck with black beans.
