I've made this several times (following the recipe exactly), and each time was impressed by the terrific flavors. This is my go-to rice and beans dish. Will make again often! And yes, it doese make an awesome burrito filling too...

Pretty good, I will definately make this again. I only made 1/2 & it still made a lot.

Made this for my son's second grade class assignment: he had to do a presentation on Cuba and bring something Cuban to eat. It was SO good that I made it the next night for my family...very simple, cheap and delicious!

This was so delicious! I served it alongside blackened cod. This would absolutely make a great vegetarian dinner. I am definitely making this again!

This was a really good last minute dinner! I had everything on hand and the flavors blended really well.

Nicely seasoned and very flavorful. The fennel seed brought a different but subtle enhancement to the other spices. This is a very versatile dish.

I used a 1/2 pound dried black beans. I substituted fresh cilantro for the coriander and fresh oregano for the dried oregano. I followed the recipe omitting all the salt until the beans had cooked for about three hours. I then seasoned with salt and continued to cook for about another hour. The finished beans were DELISH! Everyone in the family from the toddler to the adults gobbled these up.
