I didn't really enjoy this. The cajun spicing with the rice was alright, but I don't really like the tangy flavour the peppers in the jar give. Overall, I didn't find it a really moreish dish and wouldn't make again.

This was an easy recipe that made plain rice and veg really interesting. I swapped the black beans for green beans and also added sweetcorn and spring onions. Served it all with spicy pork chops. I thought jalapenos would be a good idea but the rice is hot enough without. Might serve with sour cream as a side next time as well

Very tasty. Used a tin of mixed beans and half a tin of kidney beans rather than the black eyed beans. Went down a storm at our BBQ. Next time I'm going to add some mushrooms and some other veg as I think it would make a fab, super healthy, main meal.

Great side dish - we had it with our BBQ, the leftovers were great for lunch too.

Lovely side dish. I used fresh pepper and it was still very nice
