    Both of us really liked it. However, it burned to my pot. About 1/4 was inedible. Possibly my meat was too lean. There was only 1 cup of broth and very little juice in the Rotel. Next time before adding the rice I will strain what’s in the pot to make sure the liquid to rice ratio is correct. The flavor was great! I will make this again. Thank heavens I made it in a non-stick pot.

    Turned out great, was pretty easy to make too. Hardest part is the prep and waiting for the rice to fully cook. You should probably soak it before cooking.

    my guys loved it. made it with minute rice, and a pound and a half burger, with 2 taco seasoning packs. it was great!!

    Easy and delicious Mexican dish. I cooked the rice in advance to speed up cooking time and used ground chicken since one person doesn’t eat beef. Used lots of cheese on top. Turned out well.

    Easy to make! I added two packs of taco seasoning.

    Turned out just fine. Added sour cream as a topper.

    I cooked everything together in one pot minus the cheese and lime. After serving used all other items as topping—-lime, cheese, tomato, cilantro, sour cream, and avocado to individual’s liking.

    this dish was so simple and easy. well... i literally just realized i forgot the black beans, but it really doesn’t use all that many ingredients! i made my own taco seasoning and through this recipe i have learned that i love cumin. i can imagine it reheating very easily and it’s just a really easy mexican casserole you can eat with tortilla chips or just throw it in a tortilla as a burrito. don’t be afraid to add more cheese!!!

    It was tasty! Added green pepper for more veggies. Would’ve been 5 stars but I had to make up my own taco seasoning. When there’s a packaged product there needs to be a homemade option.

    Bit spicy for the kids but next time I’ll just add more lime juice to their bowls. I love it. Used mozzarella cheese instead, fancy green beans instead of the other beans, lime juice instead of lime and jasmine rice. Mostly because I didn’t have the other ingredients. Would be great with sour cream and in a burrito. Will be making again. Delicious!! And only ONE pan for everything. Didn’t take very long either.

    That one pot meal served the 4 of us with leftovers to spare! I cooked the rice separately. I read what some reviewers said that the rice took a long time to cook when combined.

    Have made this recipe twice in 2 weeks. My husband and I love it! Everything gets cooked in one pot so there's not a million dishes to clean up afterwards. It's so easy and quick to make. I use ground turkey instead of ground beef and it tasted amazing! Lots of flavor and the recipe makes enough for us to have 3 meals each. I would suggest getting some spicy salsa to add to the top instead of tomatoes. I also like making or buying tortilla chips to eat this with.

    This is the new family favorite. The whole family LOVED it, especially the kid that hates rice. It’s been 5 days and the kids want it again tonight. I left the beans out, but putting them in next time. I also added a bit more broth.

    Husband loved it! I did have to add water and add like 10 min of cooking time. This could have been because I didn’t add beans. My husband loved it on top of nachos.

    very good! quick and easy and I will be making this again. I did top with avocado slices as one of the reviews suggested and it was wonderful.

    Delicious!!! i added an extra cup of water to help the rice cook. Cooked for a full 20 minutes and rice was perfect (jasmine rice, rinsed). Served in a warm tortilla shell with an option of sour cream. Super easy, I highly recommend!!

    I liked it! If anything I messed up on adding the cilantro too soon, but with some tortillas it’s delicious

    Turned out amazing. Only drawback was I used cast iron and burnt it just a little bit in the bottom. Really easy to make and delicious

    Excellent taste. We used jasmine rice and for 1 cup of rice, we added a total of 4 cups of liquid (broth, tomato juice, water) for it to be cooked.
    Yummly User 8 months ago
    Needed more liquid and longer cook time whole can of broth and about 25-30 mins on rice and stir frequently
