Reviews for Spanish Rice with Ground Beef

"As a first time visitor to this particular site, I must advise you all to ignore the rating given by "motherof3." Just to fill in newcomers like myself (and to you regular readers), what "motherof3" (the low rater) did is rate her own recipe 3 stars while the majority who actually followed the recipe using suggested ingredients and cooking guidelines tended to grant higher ratings. Disregard the three star rating. Rating systems simply don't work if one person changes the recipe by adding ingredients and improperly cooking the food, only to give the whole recipe a poor rating. I'll keep my eye open for any ratings from "motherof3" because I almost didn't choose this recipe until I saw the comment where she didn't even follow this recipe at all. There's a difference in making it your own and creating a totally different meal! The only thing she did remotely following the recipe was use beef and rice--which she didn't even cook the way the recipe suggests! Anyhow, great recipe! Keep it up! If you make it your own, I advise not using the recipe "motherof3" added in her comment No wonder the husband was displeased! Mine gives you five stars, as well! Lovely recipe! I added a little velveeta if anyone wants to give that a shot!"
"just made this today. pretty good recipe. i added 2-3 Tabls. of chili powder(like it spicy) and one can of black beans , yumm"
"This was easy and produced a more flavorful result than the batch I made from my memory of what my mom did 40 years ago. I notice someone gave the recipe only 3 stars but had completely changed it. It's fine to modify a recipe but I don't understand why anyone would give a low rating to a recipe they didn't follow."
"I love how easy AND tasty this recipe is!!"
"Umm, hubby said, "It wasn't terrible." Aren't you glad you haven't been feeding him for 35 years? I added a couple ingredients from a without beef recipe, a bay leaf & 2 teaspoonsbeef base, used 23 oz. tomato sauce & cooked the rice separately so it wasn't mush. Served with shredded cheddar cheese. Oh, left out the green pepper & used onion powder. The sauce tasted okay to me."
