"Love! It's so easy and delicious! I have tweaked it to make it my own by using black beans & pinto and replaced pepper with fajita seasoning. The rice is also good with some cilantro & lime."

"The sauce part was very good but the meat was horribly dry which seems impossible with the amount of liquid in there. I even used top sirloin. Maybe boneless chicken breast would be better."

"Wow, it surprised me that this had decent spiciness. It must have been from the tomatoes. Anyway, we loved it. I bought whole wheat tortillas to put the mixture in because I was tired of rice dishes. We had to drain off some of the broth, so I was surprised when I read the previous review stating theirs was dry."

"Great way to use up the round steak in our freezer. Delicious, easy, and fast to throw together. I used black beans instead of pinto beans. Had over hot rice one night, in tortillas the next. Family loved it."

"The whole family loves this recipe. I have to double the recipe so we can have leftovers for lunch. Very easy to make which is a plus. We have Chipotle in our area and they have a dish that is called Burrito Bol just like this."

"If I could give this more than 5 stars, I would! So easy, and so delicious! I have played around with the recipe a bit and have done chicken breasts instead of beef with black beans instead of Pinto. I have also substituted lean pork for the beef. Each combination is different, but still wonderful. The beef in the original recipe remains my favorite. Fast, delicious, and all-around superb!"

"this was so very simple and very good and will definitely make again but i think next time i might add and extra can of tomato and double seasonings (for the extra can) as i felt along with the rice and the beef it was a bit mroe dry and could have used more juice - but in all honesty i did have a bit more beef than what it called for (about 2 lbs) so it prob soaked up more juice than it should have - but i think the extra can wouldn't hurt anyway! very yummy and different! the beef just shredded apart!"
