This is a great beans and rice dish. I did play with the seasoning some. I used 2 T. chili powder, 1 t. cayenne and doubled the cumin and oregano. Just right for me and my family's taste. I also used white rice, just because I didn't have any brown. But brown rice sounds like a good idea and will try that next time. Thanks secret.

Yummy! I made it to go on top of Spicy Rice and Kale (Spicy Rice and Kale), which I make a lot in winter. I omitted Worcestershire sauce and parsley, but otherwise made as directed. Next time, I will cut back on cayenne and chili powder, as it was a bit spicy for my sensitive mouth. I also wanted it a bit more salty.

My new Favorite recipe. Excellent!!! Used canned kidney beans in place of dry, reduced the amount of water used and the time cooked. Also eliminated the worcestershire sauce. I prefer sauteing the onion and garlic to release sweetness. The spicing as written was perfect to me. Am craving this stuff several times a week. Excellent. Thanks for sharing.
