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.

Was looking for a substantial side to go with a bit of leftover ginger and thyme-brined pork loin roast--something hearty that would complement the ginger notes in the meat. This was fantastic! We all loved it. I made 1/3 the recipe but kept the spices at 1/2 since we find that CL recipes are a little under-spiced for our tastes. Also added Tabasco at the table. This rice and beans dish, the sliced cold pork, steamed kale, and some sliced melon made quite a feast.
