    Made 1/2 a recipe for the two of us. Great, used allspice but I think a larger amount of cumin would be preferred with the black beans. Could also add chile powder

    This was so easy and so delicious! I took another reviewer's advice and replaced the allspice with the cumin as well because I love the flavor. In addition to the low-sodium chicken broth, I also used Goya low-sodium black beans for my hubby who is on a low-sodium diet. He loved it as well....will definitely be a staple in our house for a quick and healthy meal.
