In this easy version of a classic Cuban dish, red kidney beans are seasoned with onion, bell pepper, garlic, cumin, and oregano. If you prefer black beans, use them instead, or sprinkle the dish with cilantro.

My husband & I made this last night, very flavorful, looking forward to leftovers. We used gluten free rice, which can get a little soft, it was still very tasty. Next time we will use the suggested Uncle Bens rice, I know it will be just as good, probably better.

I followed the recipe but I used black beans instead due to my husband not liking red beans i found this recipe wonderful.
