This recipe originally called for 4 T of melted butter, but I substituted the olive oil and Smart Balance to make it healthier.
You can melt some lowfat cheese on the burgers, if desired. Serve on multigrain rolls with lettuce and condiments of your choice.
You can increase the nutritional value of this dish by using whole-wheat pasta instead of regular. If you can't find chili beans, you can substitute a 15-oz can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed, plus 2 T canned green chili peppers (diced, drained); 2 tsp chili powder; and 1 tsp ground cumin. Serve with toppings of your choice (reduced-fat grated cheese; lite sour cream) and baked tortilla chips.
This is very good over brown rice. I didn't have any cornstarch in the house, so I used Wondra flour, which worked perfectly. Very easy and tasty!
This is a traditional Cuban dish, in which the black beans symbolize the Moors, and the white rice the Christians. This version is adapted from a recipe from the Bean Education and Awareness Network. My whole family loves it, even my picky 13-year-old son. It's very good with some sliced oranges and crusty bread.
