MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 10, 2013

Loved it but made a few changes to turn down the heat: used reg. rice, cooked it then added it. couldn't find the beans so used reg. pinto beans & added another 1/2 c. tomato sauce to compensate. Used only 1/2 tsp chili powder & 1/2 an onion. Also used 4 cheese blend Mexican lowfat cheese. It was still terrific.

Easy and fast meal. The Pepper Jack cheese adds a nice spice. I used brown rice adding it uncooked with an additional 1/2 c. of beef broth and cooked mixture until the rice was done. I served it with corn and tortilla chips. My husband loved it, adding sour cream and lettuce.

I needed a quick meal for a lot of people using things I had on hand. I doubled this recipe and put in a crock pot. They really liked it!

MY REVIEW

This was okay... Might be better to use salsa in this rather than tomato sauce...

Was a fast and easy meal. I would make Texas Skillet before I would make this again.
