MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 7, 2012

This was very good following the recipe exactly as written. The leftovers were great the next day too. I think the next time I make this I will use the leftovers either as a topping on tacos or add to burritos since it was so flavorful.

MY REVIEW

I've made this recipe several times since it was originally published. I vary the ingredients with what I have on hand, and it always turns out delicious! This has become one of my go to healthy meals for busy nights.

Delicious, easy & healthy. It's great with a dollop of sour cream on top.

Wow, was this surprisingly flavorful! I only had 1 can of beans, but it still seemed to work great. Also added a few dashes of tabasco sauce because I thought it'd be bland but it was really awesome. (Add some cilantro and lime to the rice and you've got a restaurant dish!)

it was excellent! I would just put a few less beans in next time. It's good served in a wrap as well!
