Spanish Rice Bake
March 08, 2011

Spanish Rice Bake Haiku: "Yawn, this was boring. I would add alot of stuff. If I made again." I should've known, with all the thumbs-up reviews saying, "I added 'x' seasoning" or "I included 'y' spice" that maybe I should've done so too. I made the recipe as written, only using a homemade salsa instead of chile sauce. I just found it extremely blah-tasting, and ending up rolling mine into a tortilla w/ additional salsa, cilantro, avocado, and other chopped veggies. The other thing that perplexed me was the dirtying of 3 dishes, when realistically, it could all be prepared in one large pot, and one could even skip baking it, and just let the cheese melt on top right on the stovetop, conserving energy (and possible calories, by using cheese to one's garnishing preference.) If I were to make this again, I would brown the beef in taco seasoning, ditch the brown sugar, and add minced garlic, more cumin, and maybe some frozen corn or black beans for added filling fiber.
