    I am eating this right now and it is AWESOME!!! I gave it five stars for the flavor and for the fact that it is probably the quickest and easiest thing I've ever made. I topped it with green onion and cilantro, and non-fat plain yogurt. You could vary it with different types of salsa, or perhaps add ground beef to the egg-and-rice mixture. If my husband leaves any leftovers, it will be great for breakfast. This is sure to be a staple in my house! Update: made to drop off uncooked at my sis & bro-in-law's house who had just come home with their new baby. The loved it. I only had Monterey Jack cheese on hand, used brown rice, and this time only had a can of refried beans instead of pinto.

    Simple and quick. Reminded me of Spanish rice, only better. I added some cumin and fresh cilantro.And just mixed everything in a bowl and tossed into my 8x8. The two of us ate about 2/3 of it last night, only stopping to save some for his lunch! I also like that this called for pinto beans instead of black beans. BF said next time to serve it with texas toast.
