  • Very Good
    Easy to make from scratch. I forgot to cook my soaked black beans so mixed them in and added a cup of water to simmer while the brown rice cooked. - 5/26/11

  • Incredible!
    Yummy! I didn't have green pepper or vinegar, so I just left it out. I sauteed the onion in water and added a dash of chili powder and a dash of old bay. AMAZING- would be great for burritos or just plain. I had with a baked potato, too. - 1/18/11
