MY REVIEW

"Maybe I made this a bit incorrectly (I don't think I did), but I thought this was a bit runny. I don't think it was from the rice, because it was leftover rice, and as most people know, rice that's been sitting in the fridge tends to get a little dry. Other than that, my husband and I thought it was delicious. We both wished it was a bit firmer, but that didn't totally detract from the taste. You definitely need to eat this with tortilla chips, or as burrito filling with refried beans (as the previous reviewer mentioned). Overally, it was good, and it used all the leftover stuff I had in my fridge. I'd probably make it again, but I'm not going to seek it out."

"My sister-in-law loves this recipe, and has called me many a time for this recipe while she is at the grocery store, because she knows I know it by heart. I tell her what ingredients she needs, and she runs to that aisle to get them! Also, I always add about 1 1/8 cups rice to 1 cup of water because sometimes the rice is too moist to be added to the rest of the recipe right away; otherwise, I have found that it tends to get a bit runny if the rice is too moist. My family always requests this recipe for family gatherings, and love it when I show up unexpectedly with a ready-made warm supper when they have had a busy week!"

"I MADE THIS RECIPE FOR dinner TONIGHT. THE TASTE WAS DELICIOUS BUT IT WAS A LITTLE THIN. THE RECIPE DIDN'T SAY TO LET IT STAND FOR 5 OR 10 MIN BUT BY THE TIME WE HAD EATEN SOME IT HAD STARTED TO SET UP. I ALSO THOUGHT THAT ANOTHER CUP OF RICE MIGHT HAVE HELPED TOO. BUT THE TASTE WAS DELICIOUS SO WILL DEFINITELY MAKE IT AGAIN."

"Very easy and quick to make. I believe this would also be good as a burrito filling by substituting the black beans with refried beans. This is a recipe that I'll be making again."
