Easy one dish meal, but I felt it needed a few adjustments. For one, I omitted the oregeno and replaced it with 1 tsp. dried cilantro and 1/2 tsp. cumin. This made the recipe more 'mexican-style' to me. Also I used black beans instead of kidney beans, I really think there are a lot of different beans that would go well with this dish. I used minced garlic and sauteed it with the onions. All in all it was good but not great, I will try it again though, maybe add a few more things for more flavor and freshness, possibly fresh diced tomatoes?
This came out great! The olives and onions weren't too strong and it was a perfect blend of flavors. I was surprised the pork chops weren't seasoned first, but they surprisingly came out great! I used 8 thin pork chops instead and just a tid bit more beans and rice to balance. Lasted for days of leftovers!
Delicious! I used pinto beans instead of kidney beans, and it turned out amazingly! I will definitely make this again.
