Great except for the very unhealthy white rice component. Try using pre-cooked brown rice. Or omit the rice and this makes a great taco filler--with fresh corn tortillas, not white flour! For variety, you can substitute tomatillos (or green salsa) for the red tomatoes.

This recipe is awesome! Got some ready to eat now and I'm going to add a little cumin and red pepper and top with sour cream like Kathy says on August 11, 2015!

Delicious meal. We added a little cumin and red pepper. Also added sour cream as a topping. We used leftover rice and that worked out fine also.

This dish was a hit with my family. Used Zatarain's Black Beans and Rice (Original), added fresh tomatoes, garlic, and onions. Will definitely recommend and make again.

We loved this dish. I added a small onion and some garlic. Also used balsamic rice. Just cooked it ahead and added it after the tomatoes. Omitted the 3/4 cup water. We will have this again.
