"Love! It's so easy and delicious! I have tweaked it to make it my own by using black beans & pinto and replaced pepper with fajita seasoning. The rice is also good with some cilantro & lime."

"I ended up making this on the stove top with thin sliced round steak and it was still delicious even without the rice!"

"The sauce part was very good but the meat was horribly dry which seems impossible with the amount of liquid in there. I even used top sirloin. Maybe boneless chicken breast would be better."

"Wow, it surprised me that this had decent spiciness. It must have been from the tomatoes. Anyway, we loved it. I bought whole wheat tortillas to put the mixture in because I was tired of rice dishes. We had to drain off some of the broth, so I was surprised when I read the previous review stating theirs was dry."

"Great way to use up the round steak in our freezer. Delicious, easy, and fast to throw together. I used black beans instead of pinto beans. Had over hot rice one night, in tortillas the next. Family loved it."

"The whole family loves this recipe. I have to double the recipe so we can have leftovers for lunch. Very easy to make which is a plus. We have Chipotle in our area and they have a dish that is called Burrito Bol just like this."
