My kids love black beans and rice, but hate vegetables. Little do they know there are more veggies in this recipe than beans! :)

We loved this. The lime and cilantro really zest this up. Using the food processor made prep for this a cinch. Served over white rice with corn pudding on the side. A very lovely meal, and using beans makes it great for the budget. Thank you.
