Reviews forGrandma's Rice Dish
"Delicious!! Used 1 can diced tomatoes with chipotle peppers, REAL bacon bits, added 1/2 tsp cumin, about 1/4 c water (it seemed a bit dry) and left out the bread crumbs. This will become a favorite."
"I changed out taco seasoning for chili powder to taste. I changed out tomatoes and juice for a can of tomato sauce, because my kid doesn't like cooked chunky tomatoes. It was a delicious meal, despite the changes!!!"
"This was horrible. The bread crumbs made it that much worse. Don't waste the ingredients like I did."
"I love this recipe. It is a good family favorite. I generally add 1 can of rinsed canned black beans to the mix. It is delicious! It tastes like the dishes that I was served in Brazil."
"This is pretty good but nothing i'd make too often. A little bit bland."
"It was a good recipe for something different. I love the "all-in-one" idea that it has veggies and starch and meat in one dish. But it's not something that I would keep making on a weekly basis. Was good, even though I didn't have the peppers or bacon. Thanks!"
