    This is even cheaper and perhaps better if you use dried beans instead of canned. For a fifteen ounce can of beans I would use a half cup of dried beans. I soak them in very hot water for 10-15 min instead of presoaking everynight. Replace water. Boil until tender. Can do this the night before. - 11/11/08

    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.

    Excellent!! I used cumin, chili powder and paprika (1/2 tsp. each) and tabasco instead of curry. I also sprinkled shredded 2% cheddar on top and added turkey sausage. This recipe will be a staple for me! - 1/27/08

    I love this and have made it quite a few times now. Recently we started using this to add to chicken burritos instead of regular beans or rice and it's fantastic. - 2/26/09

    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. - 7/24/11
