I was incredibly impressed with the recipe. It was so flavorful and so hearty, a great vegetarian entree. It was also very inexpensive – especially because I used dried black beans. I soaked them overnight and then cooked them until they were tender and then used them in the recipe instead of using canned beans. I was a little worried about using the orange zest and the juice from both oranges but it turned out amazing. All of the orange flavor added a brightness to an otherwise heavier dish. The cumin added a nice smokey flavor. I added a little shredded cheddar to the suggested sour cream and cilantro topping and it was delicious. Highly recommended – a great vegetarian meal that’s healthy and gentle to your wallet.
