Reviews for Mexican Beans and Rice
"Great foundation recipe. I added garlic, black beans ,and chilies, doulbled chili powder, doubled veggies, added a drizzle of avacado oil,and used basmati rice. Outstanding!"
"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."
"I thought this was easy and delicious. I added jalapeños to the veggies and we ate it with garlic bread. So good."
"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."
"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."
