    DELICIOUS! This is the first healthy recipe my bf has loved! I added cayanne pepper to ours, but otherwise exactly as stated. Brown rice did up the cooking time by 30 mins - 4/21/11

    I made this for supper tonight and it was wonderful. I added 3 large cloves of garlic, left out the corn, added 1 lb of lean ground beef, and before adding the brown rice I put it in the microwave with 1 1/4 cup of water for 10 minutes to par boil it. It was yummy, and very filling!! - 2/16/10

    I took the idea of this recipe and some of the comments and altered it to my own tastes delicious. I put a can of beans, can corn niblets, frozen peas, 1 cup salsa, sauted onions, carrots and celery, a cup rice (half cooked), a low sodium taco seasoning package. Mixed it up and baked it until heated - 6/6/09

    Excellent! I added a little cheddar on top when serving. I also used chicken broth instead of water and I think it added a little extra flavor. Will definitely make again! - 9/4/12

    This is a favorite that we make all the time. I use brown rice and add a minced jalapeno for extra kick. Leftovers make a great lunch option. - 8/16/11

    This was great! made a couple tweaks according to what i had on hand. One comment for anyone using brown rice - it will take a bit longer to cook (took 1 3/4 hrs for me, but i had to increase all qtys as well because i had a 19oz can of blk beans). But great recipe and very easy! - 1/26/10

  • Absolutely wonderful! I was running late so I used instant rice and didn't warm it in the oven. I just warmed it in a pan on the stove. Can't wait to make it according to recipe. SOOOO GOOOOOD! - 3/22/11

  • I didn't have corn on hand tonight. My husband likes this as is. Our daughters think some garlic would have been good on it. I used white rice. Next time I'll try brown (with the microwave pre-cook hint) and add some garlic. Easy and tasty! - 3/14/11

  • Instead of salsa, I used a can of hot rotel. I also made brown rice on the side (I'm low carb) and no corn (don't eat starchy veggies). However, this is a great base recipe for black beans. Thanks for sharing. - 11/8/10

  • Loved this vegan recipe which is high in protein and low in calories. I added onions, a can of chopped chilies, and a little chili powder. Will definitely make it again and will try different types of beans for variety. - 5/8/09
