Great Recipe, Member tomythecat

Was looking for a healthy meal to make with extra lean ground beef and black beans and i came across this. Added a few more spices in a mortar and pestle,serrano peppers for extra heat, and substituted coconut oil in place of the canola oil. I chose quinoa instead of rice, but i'm sure as is would of tasted great as well. Thanks for the recipe ;).
