  • “Very easy to make, and it’s delicious! Unfortunately, I forgot to add the corn in this batch but you can bet I will remember on future attempts with this recipe. The meal itself is very filling and satisfying – though I’m tempted to add more/different beans. Will definitely be making this one again.”

  • “This dish is soooo good. It is very easy to assemble and quick also. Put in oven and come back in an hour and quarter and ready to eat. I followed recipe as directed with the exception of adding an additional 1/2 cup water. I also sprayed casserole dish with cooking spray felt this was a good idea no scrubbing dish afterwards. this one has been added to the list of regularly prepared dishes in this house.”

  • “A definite keeper! So thick and satisfying, with a wonderful flavor. I used basmati rice, home-cooked beans,a little extra oregano and cumin and added 1/2c. water. I LOVE how this could be thrown together and tossed in the oven in 5 minutes! Served it with lots of salad. Thanks Tebo!”

  • “This dish was GREAT, and super easy to prepare.I doubled the recipe because I was feeding six people, but it would have been fine with just one batch.Also the leftovers were tasty too!Excellent side dish!”

  • “Excellent recipe. I didn’t have any salsa or tomato juice in the house so I put in some chopped tomatoes from my garden and a dash of salt and pepper. It was still excellent(:”

  • “I can’t believe other people haven’t reviewed this good and easy and healthy recipe. This is good!!!!”

  • “Great dish!Black beans are not available locally, so I used canned kidney beans.With a mild salsa everyone in the family enjoyed this as a side dish.”
