Archer Farms Black Beans and Cilantro Lime Rice Review
The package comes with a pack of cooked rice and a pack of seasoned black beans. The instructions for heating it are somewhat vague and not as clear as they could be. Also I found the cooking times to be high but this can vary by microwave. I ended up cooking the rice in the bag, cooking the black beans in the tray, and then adding the rice to the black beans.
My first impression was there was a lot to eat! Definitely 2 portion sizes. The taste was surprisingly good! It reminded me a lot of the rice and black beans from Chipotle which I really like, so this was a great substitute. It was seasoned nicely and had a good flavor. You can also add other stuff to dress it up like vegetables or cheese, but I just had it with the rice and beans.
Since there was a lot, I saved half for later. There is not really a good way to save it with the materials supplied to I ended up covering it with a paper towel and wrapping it in a plastic bag. The leftovers the next day were just as good!
I will most likely get the Cilantro Rice and Black Beans again and will probably check out what other similar meals are available from Archer Farms. If you like rice and black beans and want something that is really easy to make and tastes good, check out this new item.
