Easy, simple meal to make. My kids loved it and they're very picky. I loved the protein in this meal without the meat. We will make this again soon.

The first time I made it I loved it but the second time around came out so-so. I'm not really sure what went wrong, but I'll probably get around to trying it again. Pretty interesting meal.

I substituted red beans for black beans and added a can of chicken - it was great! Filling, lots of protein and color with a delicious smokey southwest flavor. I left out the cheese which probably would have offset the spice nicely! Would be good with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt too. I doubted the BBQ sauce too but trust the recipe! This is a quick easy dish that would be a side or main course.

Made with farfalle, kidney beans, can of corn as that is what I had in the pantry... added a little oregano and we are good to go! Easy and quick!

I made this for a church potluck and everyone really liked it. I hadn't planned ahead so it was also awesome that everything could be found in my pantry. I used whole wheat tortellini instead of the macaroni and may have been a little more generous on the cumin. I doubled the recipe as well. I thought the BBQ sauce was a strange ingredient but it really enhanced the flavor and went well with the other flavors.
