I just posted on the message board about the makeover. the nutrition info on this recipe seems more accurate than Chef Meg's makeover. Helps the diabetic to accurately track carbs. Submitted by:

Use Kumer's low sodium black beans to cut that great bg sodium number way down. I can't eat onions or garlic, so I ed onion poder and garlic powder. Still yummy Submitted by:

I just made this dish and loved it! I rinsed the black beans under running water to remove the sodium. Using fresh roma tomatoes cuts the sodium content also. I used left over brown rice that I had cooked yesterday and after reading the reviews I used the cumin, paprika, and chili powder to season. Submitted by:

I'd replace the Uncle Ben's rice with good generic brown rice in a bag - you'll lose quite a bit of the sodium. And if you really want to do a little extra work, going without a can for the black beans would do the same. Submitted by:

I have made this twice, once with unsalted, diced tomatoes, and once with the regular, diced tomatoes. I can definitely tell a difference in the taste between one and the other. Both are very good. I'm not restricting sodium, so I go for the regular variety. Very good recipe! Submitted by:

This is a good base recipe. I used dried black beans w/overnite soak. I cook them in low sodium chicken broth w/sauteed carrots, celery, onions, green and red bell pepper. I used oegano my favorite seasoning.

Great recipe. Very versatile. I used to no sodium tomatoes and added cumin and cayenne pepperfor a quick. With a little lean ground turkey you have a meal that stays with you for hours. Submitted by:

I just cooked this up. Very filling and pretty good. I ended up adding quite a bit of salt though. Next time I'll add some more herbs and maybe some chicken. Very useful base recipe though! Thanks!

ETA: This stuck with me for a remarkably long time, enhancing my love for it.
