      WARNING: Proceed with caution. This recipe is VERY HOT as written ("warm" is definitely not the right adjective here and I think BrotherAdso wrote this with tongue-in-cheek humor). To make this BF friendly, I used only 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin and 3/4 teaspoons cayenne. I then added tabasco to my portion. Even with these adjustments, the recipe was too hot for my BF's taste (but not mine, and I'm writing the review:D). I added all of the reserved liquid to the beans as they cooked, and there is a minor disconnect between the ingredients and instructions, so I used scallions instead of cilantro because that's what I had at home. Cilantro I'm sure would have been tasty too. The beans were very delicious and the mix of textures was nice too. Other than adjusting the spices to taste, I recommend cooking the rice in vegetable broth. I split this recipe into 3 servings, and took the leftover serving to work for lunch (separate container for beans so I could heat those up). Very high in fiber too. Thanks!
