We love this recipe. I use diced tomatoes and tomato sauce instead of the stewed tomatoes and water. I have also use brown minute rice in place of the long grain rice. I see other ideas posted that I may also try. So easy and taste great!!
This turned out great, but feel it wouldn't have been as good if I didn't do some modifications. Based on other reviews, I added a clove of minced garlic and subbed a can of Rotel hot tomatoes instead of stewed tomatoes and water. We served this in tortillas and loved it!
Oh....my....God! This stuff is great. I used a box of Zatarain's Black Beans and Rice instead of the plain rice and wow....it's a keeper! Also, I sauted the onions in butter and paprika before adding the ground beef. I will never make it in the traditional style again. Thank you taillights!
very yummy! i added extra green pepper and used a can of diced tomatoes instead of stewed.
Made this in the crockpot as others suggested. (2 hrs on high, then I stirred the cheese in just before serving). I cooked 1 cup of rice according to package instructions before adding it. I also added 14 oz. tomato sauce and sprinkled on a little dried crushed red pepper. I used fresh tomatoes instead of canned. The end result was more like a stew but everyone loved it!
Tastes great! So simple, only change was to add taco seasoning and another 1/2 cup water to lean ground beef. And used diced tomatoes because I did not have stewed on hand. Thanks for recipe.
All the flavors with less prep. My kind of meal. Thanks for sharing with us.
wow this did NOT cook evenly at all<br/>some of my rice is mushy, some cooked perfectly, and some crunchy and uncooked, some peppers are still raw too, after an hour and a half in the hot oven, disappointed.<br/>its also pretty bland, i even added salt, pepper, garlic, and paprika but i will be adding more spices before i add the cheese (its still in the oven)
This was so fast and easy! I just whipped it up for a late supper. My changes were small but made it 5 stars for me. I added 2 ears of leftover corn that needed using up, threw in brown rice I had frozen a few weeks ago and topped it with shredded cheddar. I made it on top of the stove so we didn't have to wait that hour to eat. Cooked up in 25-30 minutes. Soooo good! Excellent recipe to play around with. Thank you taillights!
Pretty bland. I perked it up with 3 garlic minced garlic cloves a stalk of chopped celery, 2 tsp of Italian seasonings, a pinch of red pepper flakes.
