Hooray for Quick-Quick Couscous. I came home very late last night and
starved - so thanks Kathleen for a very quick recipe. It was done in no
time. You wanted recipes using instant black beans. I only found one - but
am adding two other quick recipes where I see no reason you cannot use
instant black beans instead of canned as long as you adjust for the liquid.
Hope this helps. Patty.

RICE with SALSA and BEANS - from ad in magazine for Minute White Rice
Prepare 2 cups uncooked Minute Rice as directed on package. Stir in 1 cup
salsa and 1 cup drained, canned black or red beans. (No nutritional data
given) @ 4 servings.
(I use instant brown rice when making this as I don't like the white - and
using instant is not as good as the regular but when you're in a hurry
you're in a hurry - at least that's my excuse).
