"Excellent flavor - mixes with grilled chicken perfectly. Compatible with a rice cooker"

I have been buying single bags of the various Vigo flavored rices as they come on sale at our local grocery store - trying each variety to see what we like. This Black Bean & Cuban Rice is really good. It is a tad high in sodium, so keep that in mind. The spices are very good overall, though if you're looking for pepper heat, you won't find it here. The ratio of black beans to rice is just right.
I put the whole bag in our fuzzy logic rice cooker with a bit of olive oil and let the machine do its thing. In the last 7 minutes of the cycle, I added two cups of cooked, cubed grilled chicken and served with a simple green salad. A nice, very simple summer meal that took almost no effort. I'll buy this from Vigo again for sure.
