      Fantastic and easy! We don't get black beans here, so I used garbanzo, and it probably gave the dish a completely different taste, but I loved it! I used 1 tsp oil and 1/4 tsp of garlic paste for 2 servings, and used cumin seeds instead of cumin powder. Don't omit the vinegar as it adds a wonderful tartness! I had this with rotis for a great lunch.

      Fixed these just the way you directed. Then I put them in the food processor w/ a little lime juice and made the perfect lunch tortilla. Thank you. These will be a regular on my menu!

      Really good and super easy. I didn't read the recipe correctly and ended up draining my can of beans. Since I didn't have any liquid I substitued with broth and it was still really good.
