This was a unique recipe for a rice dish. I liked the addition of the green beans. The rice was moist and not dry. The dish had a strong taste of stewed tomatoes. It was the prominent flavor, and I am not sure I liked that. I may make this recipe again, but it's not something I would make frequently.

For a super quick meal (I had some cooked rice in the refrigerator) this was very tasty. I liked the little bit of sweetness, and it had a good flavor without being overly seasoned. I'll definitely make it again!

This recipe was delicious just the way it is. I had thought I would leave out the beans at first, but changed my mind and left them in. Glad I did. It was great. Always looking for something different to do with ground beef.

I liked it. I used white rice instead of the long grain rice. I also added a little salasa and maybe a 1/4 cup of water to the recipe. I added a little extra garlic. I also used 1 TB of worcestireshire sauce instead of 1tsp. And last, I used 1/2 a can of green beans and 1/2 can corn. I'd make it again. It was pretty good and filling.

This is sooo good! We have it at least once a month. I've seen many recipes for Spanish Rice, and I think of this as more of a casserole. I'm Spanish, and Spanish rice is yellow (saffron), sometimes with peas, carrots & onions, and it is a side dish. This recipe is more of a paella variation, to me. Regardless, my family loves casseroles, and this fits the bill. The only change I made was to up the Worcestershire sauce to 1 tablespoon. Great "comfort" food!

This is a great dish that even my pickiest eaters will eat. I do omit the sugar and add a little extra rice and beef broth to the mix - it's excellent!!!

This dish is better when you substitute canned sweet corn for the green beans and add green bell pepper to this recipe.
