    Great! I used brown rice which ended up being a little undercooked but the flavors were amazing!!!

    Good recipe. I used basmati rice and vegetable broth and put it in the rice cooker (1 cup rice to 2 cups water). Added the black beans, garlic and salt to the rice before cooking. Served with tacos. Would totally make this again.
