I'd try it except for the calories!!!! How big is a serving? Is it really nearly 500 calories? Submitted by:

so it says 6 cups of rice, so you have one cup of rice and 1/6 of the beans is aserving. If you look that up the calories are correct. You can reduce the amount of rice if you want less calories Submitted by:

Sounds wonderful. I love black beans and am always looking for ways to up my protein since I don't eat much meat. Submitted by:

This is a very good meal in itself. I have read that rice & beans combined, makes a complete protein. Being partiallyl vegetarian, having food like this is very important. Submitted by:

When I make beans similar to these, I add quite a bit of salsa (vinegar and pimiento) and some cumin. When serving, I plop in a tbsp of low fat or non fat sour cream. Submitted by:

Ok but needs some spicing up. I'm assuming you divide the calories by 6 since it says it makes 6 servings? Submitted by:

Thanx! Looking forward to trying this. Love Caribbean & Mediteranean dishes lately. Question the Nutrition values though. Like aforementioned, there is no way I could eat a cup of rice OR a lb of beans!
How much is 1 Serving? How many servings does this make?

Note that the calorie count is for a whole cup of rice PLUS 1/6 of the beans. That's a much larger helping than I would normally serve per person. That said, beans & rice are one of the most nutritious, satisfying foods around. Try cumin, cayenne, tarragon for flavor. Submitted by:

Great recipe!!! But I would try it with some yellow rice. There are so many healthy ways, you can make yellow rice. Store bought has too much sodium. Submitted by:

A good base, very filling. A lot of satisfaction per calorie. However, "Caribbean" did not come to mind, it was very bland and there are no spices to speak of in this recipe. Some additional sea salt at the table perked it up though, and next time I will add spices to the beans during cooking. Submitted by:
