actually calls for 2 (15oz) cans black beans... cant seem to compute that... but i prefer to cook my own beans anyways. Also calls for 2 stock cubes... but i like to leave out the extra sodium, and use my own stock instead of water. Also i think Lime juice is better, but that to your own preference.
