Great basic recipe! I used bacon grease to saute the veggies and toast the rice. I didn't have veggie broth, I used 1 pkt of Sazon con azafran and 1 pkt Goya chicken bouillon in the water. I did everything else as directed except I only drained the beans (Goya brand again), but didn't rinse as I enjoy the flavor. I added ham that I had leftover with the beans. Great flavor, perfect 1 dish meal,
Great "Hamburger Helper" dish! I loved the one pot meal, as others did. I started by browning 3/4 pound ground beef (96%) with purple onions and a tiny bit of bell pepper. I used beef broth because I had no vegetable. I proceeded with recipe as directed. Seasoned with some dry cilantro from the pantry. Topped with some shredded mexi cheese, served alongside sour cream and guacamole! YUM! Cheap, great, fast!
i desperately needed to go to the grocery and felt like i had nothing to cook. that is until i found this recipe. i would definitely recommend using a non-stick skillet for this recipe so you don't end up scraping rice off the bottom of your pan. i sprinkled some mexican blended cheese on top but some sour cream would have been amazing. i didn't have green onions so i skipped them. turned out just fine. and i love cooking in just one pan. thank you dicentra for sharing this recipe and saving me from starvation! :-)
Delicious!! I omitted the chopped onion, and used a bit more green onion. I also used chicken broth instead of vegetable. It couldn't have been better. Cilantro gives it the perfect flavor. The whole family loved it!
I thought it was a bit "oniony" but it was good. My family loved it. Thats why I gave the 4 stars. I did use the seasoned canned black beans and the kids thought it was spicey but good. Thanx for the recipe!
