    Karen Elizabeth's Note:

    Found on an advertising flyer, nutritious and full of flavour and texture. Prep time does not allow for the bean preparation, although if you substitute canned beans, then the time stated is the time it will take!

      We really enjoyed this recipe last night with our ground turkey tacos. Don't be intimidated by the long ingredient list--the prep is very fast and the recipe is easy to make. I subbed a red bell pepper for green, as that is what I had on hand. I used a can of black beans, and used frozen corn, which I blanched. I used a 15 oz can of fire roasted tomatoes. I kept all spice proportions as listed and used a little more cilantro, as we love it. The rice was very moist and flavorful. I enjoyed it again today for lunch. I'd definitely make this again. Thanks for posting.

      Very good. We had this dish with tuna steaks tonight. I used canned black beans and canned corn as that is what I had on hand. Did not add the green pepper but added the whole can of black beans. Made for Ausie Swap #35. Thanks for posting.

      Really good. Used canned beans & frozen corn and extra veggies I had in the fridge (zucchini & carrots). Had to omit the lime & cilantro as I didn't have any. Added some smoked sweet paprika. Added some diced smoked sausage for a very filling meal. Kids loved it & it disappeared quickly.
