Reviews forMexican Beans and Rice
"Vegetables, beans, whole grains...and easy to make besides? A vegetarian delight! I love stuff like this! Thank you so much, Lorraine, for sharing."
"I loved this recipe I toned down the spices because of my little ones and added ground beef for the older one who thinks there has to be meat at every meal.We ate it in tortillas.I made Mexican cornbread to serve with .I will definitely make again"
"To Lorraine (the recipe poster), THANK YOU for sharing one of your recipes so that my family can enjoy something your family does."
"This really is wonderful. You can switch up ingredients to your favorites. This is great and I make changes all the time."
"I made this with white rice. I followed each step of recipe. I thought this was great,.I definitely will make this again and try using different type of Beans. Thanks for the recipe."
"Tasty and fulfilling"
"This recipe was so good. The only thing I did different was use Black Beans, add a Jalapeno, cumin and extra chili powder. My husband asked that we make this as a special side dish to go along with our Mexican dishes. It would take very little to make it a main dish by adding meat of your choice."
"This looks great! Unfortunately, hubby won't eat beans unless they are mashed unrecognizable. So, I think if I mash them and add dollops to the dish, he might really like it. As for me, I love it just the way it is presented here.Also, it depends on personal taste how one seasons this dish. I added a little salt which brings out all the flavors. : )"
