Mexican Beans and Rice Recipe

Publisher Photo
On cold or rainy days, this comforting dish really fills the tummy. Sometimes I switch up pinto beans for kidney beans or use white rice instead of brown. Add rolls and a green salad, and it's dinner! —Lorraine Caland, Shuniah, ON

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 14, 2014

This was delicious! We used white rice instead of brown and tomatoes with chiles. Next time I'd like to try it with pinto beans. Also, subbed soy sauce for Worcestershire since I was out.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 2, 2014

I thought this was easy and delicious. I added jalapeños to the veggies and we ate it with garlic bread. So good.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 16, 2013

Definitely easy to fix. Tasted pretty good. Some garlic, hot sauce, and maybe some green chiles could punch up the flavor a bit. Very healthy with all of the veggies and brown rice.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 9, 2013

I found this recipe to be unpleasantly wet and gloppy and without any actual 'mexican' flavor. Even after adding more chili powder, cumin and finally a packet of Sazon, it just tasted like bland rice which i was never able to get to dry out sufficiently. Will not make again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 16, 2013

This was good. Added the tomatoes with chilis and 1lb of smoked sausage cut into small pieces.
