Thank you for posting this! I had lost this recipe and was tickled to find it again. I use red kidney beans or pintos sometimes, family likes it with any bean, and we use our favorite Mexican rice #117892. I hate frying taco shells in 100+ degrees, so this is our summer tacos! In order to not heat up the house I also make the rice exactly as stated but instead of the oven I use the rice maker. Love this recipe!
