Love the recipe!

Lucky you!! To find canned black beans with low sodium (Goya you picture is high in sodium), my price/15oz can is $2.29. Our aldi doesn’t even come close to the $.49!

It’s fermented and very rich in umami rather than just spice.

A question about the heat. I started with 2 tbsp of Sambal Oelek and it had a little kick. Next time I might try 3 tbsp. But 4? Holy Inferno, Batman! That would be one spicy dish. Or I am using something other than what you suggested?

Loving your blog! I binged on it last night and I’m glad there’s lots more left to read. Thanks!

LOL!

I’m a single mom with two active teenage girls and I’m always looking for quick, cheap but healthy and tasty meals. My youngest recently decided to become a vegetarian. Lucky for me, she loves rice and beans. I thought I’d try this recipe to mix it up a bit. This was so quick to pull together! I used red onion, instead of shallots because that’s what I had. I also used 3 tbsp of the chili sauce rather than 4 so as to ease up a bit on the spice effect for my girls. In addition, for time’s sake, I use minced garlic I buy in big jar at Costco (although, I think fresh tends to add better flavor!) By the way, I have a cheap little rice cooker I purchased at Target about 10-12 years ago that has been a life saver! It provides perfect rice every time, I also use it to make quinoa! And last but not least…I love your blog! Thanks for this recipe and all the inspiration your blog provides!

My hub is a vegetarian and we eat a lot of beans. I soak overnight, rinse and cook the next day. I portion them out into containers. My Dad grew up during the depression so I learned a lot of frugal meal. “Pasta fazool” is a favorite of ours.

Amazon? I couldn’t find it at my local grocery store in the ethnic food section.
