I liked this recipe because it is high in fiber and protein and low in fat. I made a few changes. I used brown rice because it is healthier and cooked it seperately in low sodium, fat free chicken broth. To the broth I added cumin, tumeric, garlic powder and onion salt to flavor the rice as it cooked. In another pot, I sauteed sweet onion and garlic in 1 tbs of olive oil. After veggies became translucent, I added 1 (10 oz) can of tomatoes and green chilis and 1 (15oz) can of drained black beans and heated through. After rice was cooked, I tossed the bean/tomato mixture in with the brown rice and added a splash of lime juice. As condiments, you may want to add a dollop of low fat sour cream and/or low fat cheddar cheese. Very tasty and healthy meal. Deb, Georgia

I have a very similar version of this recipe. The one I used called for draining & rinsing the beans, adding 2 minced garlic cloves (instead of garlic powder), adding 2/3 cup water & using 1 and a half cups of instant brown rice (instead of one cup white rice). Instead of stewed tomatoes, I used diced tomatoes & just added some garlic powder, onion powder & basil. This last time I added a dash of cayenne too & a little leftover slivered cooked chicken. It's fine meatless though. It's a nice meal to make when you don't have something defrosted & want something quick, easy & nutritious.

Quick and Yummy! I adopted different suggestions and made my own delicious beans. I did not add rice but cooked rice separately and served the rice with the beans on the side. For the beans, I thoughly drained and rinsed the beans to get rid of the tin taste. I used 1/2 of a very large fresh vine-riped tomato, 1/4 of a green pepper, 1/2 onion, 1 clove minced garlic. All veggies were finely chopped except for tomatoes which were bigger. I used extra virgin olive oli to saute the garlic and onion. I then added green peppers and tomatoes with salt and fresh ground pepper. I added black beans a bit of water and chopped 1 slice of ham (omit if you're vegetarian). I used basil, oregano, paprika and cayenne for flavor. I ended up adding about 1/2 cup of water. add more water if you want. I let it simmer for about 5 min. in low heat. I'm eating it right now with a bowl of rice, some sliced avocado, cheese and fresh tomatoes. Oh my god, it tastes so good!!!
