Great when made as is. Quick easy recipe. As a bonus add poached or scrambled eggs! Read More

Disappointed This was not what I was expecting. It was very bland and as much as I like my carbs the beans did not go well with the whole wheat bread I used. Instead of salsa I used freshly sliced tomatoes; perhaps that was part of the problem. Were I to make this again I would add a little spice to the beans (cumin and chile powder) and use a spicy salsa instead of (or in addition to) the tomato. Pros: Quick healthy Cons: Boring Read More
