Reviews for Mexican Skillet Rice
"We also have teen Hockey player eating machines...I made it on Monday and they asked me to make it again on Tuesday. It's a keeper. Didn't change a thing. Perfect as is."
"I used ground chicken instead of tenderloins and doubled the garlic. Next time I'd use more cilantro. Nothing special here, just a good one to file under Quick Cooking."
"Came out great however, I used ground turkey and using two cups of rice plus all the other is just to much (just the wife and I)But I did give it to our neighbor who has two teen age boy eating machines and it was a hit."
"This dish is right up my husbands alley. So I did a quick menu change when I came across it and surprised him. He really liked it."
"My whole family loved this dish. It's one of those dishes that is easily adaptable to what you have on hand. I didn't have mexicorn so used canned corn plus a little red bell pepper; was out of taco sauce so used picante sauce. I also used up some leftover Mexican style rice from a previous meal. All worked great. Looking forward to making it again with the provided ingredient list!"
"My family (including two picky young boys) love this recipe and I sneak in a few extra veggies!"
"I added a bit more taco seasoning to this recipe for added pazzaz. My Son says it is a make again!"
"Delicious stuff! I eliminated the egg. Also leftovers can be used for taco filling."
