Many variations of this dish use oregano as the main herb, but we like the flavor of cilantro a bit better with the earthy taste of the black beans.

My go-to recipe for rice and beans

I've been making this dish since it appeared in the magazine many years ago. All I change is to use fresh red bell pepper instead of roasted, and I don't use chicken stock in the rice because we are vegetarians. It is our absolute favorite rice and beans recipe, and even my very fussy daughter loves it.

Healthful, delicious, easy
Everyone loves this recipe!!

I can't believe no one has reviewed this dish, my husband and I have been making this for years and it never disappoints. TIP make sure you always make the rice with chicken broth not water, you will not get the depth of flavor.

It's quick, healthy, tasty and the ingredients are easy to find

I found this recipe so long

I found this recipe so long ago that I came looking on line so I could print it out as my magazine copy is hardly readable anymore. We love to toss in shrimp and wrap up in a tortilla with avocado, salsa and sour cream. Great as a left over as well.
