Why I Love This Recipe

As I am always trying to eat healthy (not succeeding right now) this recipe combined a black bean recipe I had to add the meat my husband craved. He loves this recipe. It also freezes well. I usually freeze rice in 2 cup ziploc bags and stack them in my freezer. Hope you like this.
