Red Chile Chicken and Rice with Black Beans Review
5 stars (on a 5 star scale)
Very good. Nice bit of spiciness. The ingredients went together well and each tasted flavorful on its own. I needed to add extra chicken broth while cooking to prevent burning.
The recipe suggests serving it with a little salsa. I tried this with a basic but good tomato salsa and found it detracted from the dish; it was more enjoyable on its own.
I've made this a few times since my original post. It’s still good. I like the balance of protein (chicken), starch (rice), and vegetable (onion, broccoli, whatever). (I tried the broccoli elaboration, which worked well.) I've always found no salsa was necessary.
I like that this is a straightforward, forgiving recipe.
