I added a garlic clove in with the beans to simmer (next time I'll use a cup of broth) before processing. Also a sprinkling of cumin and cayenne pepper. We doubled the avocado just because. I made steamed brown rice from scratch so it took a bit longer to prepare but it was worth it. The flavors went really great together. Very filling too. Will make again.
Solid weeknight dinner, easy and fast to prepare. I added 2 cloves of garlic, cumin and cayenne pepper to the beans. I cut the butter in half and next time would not even add it. I only had garlic chili sauce for the shrimp and used pepper jack cheese because it's what I had on hand. It's filling and healthy.
I made this exactly as written and it was DELISH!
Also VERY quick and easy, perfect for a weeknight dinner. Will definitely make this again.
Won't make again, not enought depth in flavor here. In all fairness, I also cut corners; using canned refried beans, but I don't believe that made a hugh difference.
I made half this recipe for 2 of us and it is very good. It is basically healthy refried beans & rice with toppings! I had to add extra broth to the beans when I pureed them because they were too dry and clumpy. I also added a little more chili sauce to the shrimp. Pretty easy and quick.
I skipped the bean paste and just used canned ranch beans. I also used long grain wild rice. Instead of mango I just used a small container of tropical fruit (drained). I also added a big spoon of sweet relish to the slaw to add moisture. I used peeled frozen shrimp and shredded Mexican cheese. It was still beautiful and delicious.
Loved it! This is a keeper. However it took me way longer than 25 min to prepare, lots of cutting & chopping, plus a lot of dishes to wash. Good weekend dish when you want to relax and cook. The home made bean mixture had a wonderful taste to it. Felt like you were eating a healthy delicious meal. However, if I were in a hurry on a weeknight I'd use the packaged brown rice as suggested and canned beans (I made the brown rice). I may try with tofu or chicken some time, but it was outstanding with the fresh wild shrimp I purchased.
