sheesh
you really oughta cut this out!
Half or two-thirds of a cup (you don't specify) is nearly 50 carbs?!? ...so.... I can eat a few spoonsfuls of this and then nothing else but water the rest of the day. Great.
I'm going to jump right on this one.

I like the recipe, I would exchnge cannd blk beans for fresh blk beans cookd in crock w/o the salt+sodium. The rice I would mix brown rice+country wild rice [long grain brown rice, whole grain wehani rice, whole grain blk rice] this mixture gives recipe a nutty flavor. Submitted by:

Does anyone know what the nutritional info would be like for the quinoa instead of the brown rice? I want to like brown rice but my tummy doesn't for some reason. It's not the added fibre either. I eat a lot of fibre. My tummy just doesn't like brown rice. Submitted by:

Didn't have canned tomatoes, subbed salsa & fresh tomatoes. Served over a bed of shredded romaine topped w/no-fat greek yogurt for an "inside-out" veggie taco salad! Yummy-licious! Submitted by:

I like it a little spicier and found that it needed salt and I needed to add water as it simmered the last few minutes. All in all it's a great recipe.. and definitely what I was looking for to add protein and fat without meat. Also appreciated the suggestion of eating with quinoa. Submitted by:

cooked black beans from scratch; substituted barley for brown rice, and added fresh corn, sauteed onion, garlic and celery, Mrs. Dash's original no-sodium spice. Delicious for make- ahead servings. I serve with fresh corn on the cob, home made corn muffins. Submitted by:

folks, the point is the beans and rice are a complete protein. don't need chicken and cheese. add a salad instead. Submitted by:

I used quinoa instead of rice and added finely diced carrots and celery (cooked with the quinoa in low sodium chicken broth). More veggies and protein and larger serving size with little increase in calories. Rinsed canned beans very well. Served with grilled chicken breasts. Yummy! Submitted by:

This was delish! As for the serving sizes ewils1, divide the finished meal into four equal servings. This recipe makes 4 servings and the calorie content per 1 serving is listed. Then you will also be able to see what size the servings are once divided. Submitted by:

This recipe was delicious...even my 10 month old loved it! We added 12 oz. of chicken breast to that added an additional half serving and 119 calories, 1 gram of fat, and 18 grams of protein per serving. Submitted by:

why does one always have to guess the serving size? I have tried, but according to my simple math skills two cups of rice split in 4 servings equals 1/2 c. serving of just rice. So I go to the nutritional break down & discover that the calories are for 1/4 c. of rice, so something is wrong!! Submitted by:

I have made black beans and rice for years but have never added cumin and cilantro. I will try it. I also like the suggestion of trying it with quinoa. That would add more protein. Submitted by:

SMBRYCE1- the sodium is found in mostly the canned goods-the black beans and tomato. I have seen "no sodium added" versions of both, if sodium is a big concern for you, you may want to try them that way or cooking your own. Submitted by:
