I'd been looking for more ways to eat beans since they're so good for you. This recipe is really tasty, and popular with the kiddo's to. I've reduced the amount of rice by a lot to cut the carbs. Even with reducing the rice to where it's about 3 or 4/1 (beans vs. rice) you use about the same amount of Worcestershire The blend of flavors is really different and this recipe went into my regular rotation right away. Thanks for this instant classic!!!
This is an awesome rendition of what I loved when I lived in Costa Rica. I recommend upping the proportion of beans and *definitely* adding cilantro. Thanks for sharing!
This was really good! I used brown rice and pinto beans as that is what I had on hand. Garnished with a little cheese (no sour cream) and the suggested cilantro and green onions. Served with chicken! Fantastic
Excellent. Made it for a Costa Rican Potluck and everyone loved it.
Good vegetarian version of the recipe, although I would add some chopped red bell peppers. For those who complain about this recipe being bland, Costa Rican cooking is very mild compared with other Hispanic and Caribbean cuisines. The best breakfasts I had in Costa Rica included fried banana and either scrambled eggs or turialba (white) cheese.
I love this recipe! The seasonings for the beans were great and the addition of the rice made it even better. This was something different and I'm glad I tried it. Will make again.
Yum! This brought back memories of our Costa Rica travels! I can't believe how easy it was. I substituted brown rice and added chopped red bell pepper. I also added about a 1/4 cup of chicken broth to pull up spices from the bottom of the pan and get the consistency I was after. Great with chicken for dinner and I plan on eating the leftovers with eggs tomorrow!
This was completely wonderful. I was amazed at how the flavors melded so well and so quickly. This is great comfort food. Will try this with eggs next time as other reviewers spoke of. My only complaint (and it is a small one) is that it is a little dry. Over all a truly satisfying, quick to fix and filling dish. This is definitely going in the regular rotation
I am going with three stars too. I really like beans and rice dishes and I like everything that went into here but I too felt it was missing something. I am not a lover of spicy foods but I think maybe it needed a little bit of heat or more of the spices that were already in there? That said, we did enjoy it rolled up in tortillas with refried beans (it is going to be a musical house tonight) and salsa.
