Reviews for Colorful Hamburger Rice
"I made this and substituted chicken broth for 1 cup of the water and added in 1 cup of Stubb's Original BBQ sauce. I also mixed in 2 cans of beans-1 black and 1 chili (without draining them). It added a nice tex-mex style flavor. Topped with shredded cheddar cheese and served with warm cornbread it was a quick and easy hit. There was enough to feed my family of 6!"
"I used super lean ground beef and left out the butter; used fat-free beef broth instead of water, and added 1 t. each basil, oregano, thyme, and marjoram. Even with those changes it was a bit blah, so we added a spoonful of soy sauce to individual servings, and that was good. For vegetables I used 1 large chopped zucchini and a package of thawed mixed vegetables. It tasted better the second day."
