Yum! Quick (as promised by tne recipe) and easy and very good!

A few modifications. I went to prepare the beans for this recipe and realized I had no black beans. I swapped it for pinto beans with great success. I didn't have cayenne so I added 2 Tbsp. chili powder and some crushed red pepper. To add to the veggie content I included some green pepper and canned diced tomatoes.

I served it over brown rice with a big salad. A delicious, filling meal.
