Cookbook creator says: Really good recipe. Next time, drain the beans and add broth. Also, maybe double the rice or add corn.
Would probably be good with cornbread.

Cookbook creator says: The recipe was quite good. We used turkey stock, as that's what we had on-hand. We also added more veges than the recipe called for.

I used black and pinto beans because that's what I had cooked in my refrigerator. You could use other varieties. I also threw in the chiles because I wanted to use those up too. And we like garlic, so I used a lot for this recipe. Feel free to make substitutions to use items in your pantry.
