    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.

    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.

    Needed more liquid and longer cook time whole can of broth and about 25-30 mins on rice and stir frequently

    Really well I topped it with sour cream just before serving it and that really added good flavor. Very good recipe-simple to make

    This was the best casserole I ever made. It was fast and simple to make. My kids who dont like corn and tomatoes even liked it. Just add some sour cream and black olives on top. I am going to try to make a burrito out of the left overs for my lunch tomorrow. This is going to be on the family menu from now on.

    I really liked this recipe! My husband is picky and I believe he thinks it was missing something or it just wasn’t quite his taste. I may try it with pinto beans instead of black and see if he likes that better. My kids loved it too which is a rare thing!
