Traditional Black Beans and Rice

Submitted by: RD03875

Introduction

Yummy side or main dish. Called for garlic salt but I use whole fresh garlic, I also add cilantro.
The recipe called for 2 cups cooked rice but I do not like to add it to the recipe but serve it on the side in case someone does not want rice.
This calls for Draining and reserving the juice from a can of Bush's Black beans, I drain and rinse the beans but add water in place of the bean juice
