    Delish been making this for several years -last night substituted a can of crushed fire roasted tomatoes instead of diced (along with double the spices and a few dashes of coriander and smoked paprika) and it was delightful. The crushed tomatoes made the dish creamier and distributed the tomato flavor better. Looking forward to lunch today 🙃

    This is definitely worth making. I added 2 cans of beans and doubled the spices. It’s a great meatless meal.

    Delicious, and this can be amended to your preferences. I add a pint of hot pico to the pan, and I added sofritas tofu as well. Top it with some shredded Mexican cheese for some cheesy goodness. Yum!

    I was missing a few ingredients but faked my way through with a few changes, it was great but I would like to try it as written I think it would be even better!

    Not good. I followed the directions but didn’t like it at all. It was bland and the texture was like a paste. We ended up throwing it away. Couldn’t even finish it.

    Super good and easy to make! Healthy too! I mixed this at times with vegan cheese but it doesn’t need it.

    So tasty and easy, doubled the black beans and added some more seasoning. Would have been great with some seitan or TVP added in as well.

    I personally prefer adding some extra cumin. Soooo yummy, got some heat from pepper and jalapeño, some freshness from tomatoes. Too good!!!

    I made it for a dinner party and my friend loved it so much she started making it for friends. Then she mentioned it to me and I had totally forgotten about it so had her send me the recipe again. Time to make it again.
