I created this recipe after ruining a dinner of Spanish rice. I tried to salvage the dish by adding more water, cilantro and green chiles. It was a hit with the whole family. It's hearty enough to be a main meal with the addition of a garden salad and some corn bread.—Marilyn Schetz, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio

"Hearty dish! I made a "few" changes. Sauted 5 cloves of garlic with the onions, in the hamburger drippings. 32oz beef broth instead of water, 2c brown rice & tomato sauce instead of diced tomatoes. Brought the liquids to boil before adding the rice. I don't buy taco seasoning. Used 1T chili powder & 1/2 tsp cumin. Added some canned corn too. Served it with sour cream & cayenne pepper powder, to pass. & a pan of corn bread. Big hit!"
