Such a yummy rice and bean dish. I added an extra teaspoon of chili powder and a light sprinkle of red pepper flakes for a little more spice. Very delicious and healthy too. Thanks for sharing this Dorothy.
My family really enjoyed this dish. Especially my husband who usally doesn't give a favorably comment easily. I used black beans and they worked quit well. I also used chicken bouillion and left out the bay leaf and it still turned out great.
