I am a huge fan of EASY, fast, and nutritious meals -- and this is one of them! The only changes I made were to use bottled peppers like someone else mentioned in the reviews; eliminated the olives (just because I don't like them); and used Thai long grain rice (since I have a gigantic bag of the stuff). I don't like super hot meals, but this dish was a flavourful heat. I found myself adding a bit more jalapenos each time! Don't make the mistake I did at first though -- I drained the black beans. It was still good but it is oh so delicious on rice with more sauce! I make a pile of this stuff, and dole it out as a snack, sidedish, or main meal with salad. I also did what someone else suggested: sautee some onions and garlic and add it to the beans -- YUM!! Thanks for a quick recipe with minimum dishes to clean up afterwards!

I drained the juice from the beans as suggested by other reviews-big mistake! The beans were too dry. The flavor was great! I loved them but I would say LEAVE THE JUICE!! This is definetely one of my favorite side dishes nad I will make many more times!

After reading the reviews, I drained most of the liquid from the beans. The whole family enjoyed this and my son thought it was excellent. He rarely likes anything I cook. I did add a cubed cooked chicken breast to make my hubby happy. Next time will add some more chicken and my son asked to add more black olives next time too. Thank you Amy for a great recipe.
