I found this recipe to be pretty good! It was tasty and easy to prepare. It definitely needs to be wrapped in your favorite taco/burrito shells though and add a touch of cheese (mont. jack colby or cheddar). Next time I'll use some salsa lettuce tomato and sour cream as well as other taco condiments! Read More

A little bland. But not bad. I added some cumin and fresh cilantro which made it a little better. Read More

This was really good comfort food. I would definitely make this again. I didn't have any peppers so I just used two onions. I added some fresh cilantro a dash of chili power and a dash of red pepper flakes. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This was really good! I used instant rice so I cut the liquid down to 2 cups (used 2 bullion cubes to two cups water instead of the broth) I also added about a half packet of taco seasoning to jazz it up. I served it with tortillas refried beans lettuce and sour cream. It was perfect. My boyfriend really liked it. Very filling and I have enough of the mix leftover so I'm going to try using it in a Mexican Shepard's pie. I would defiantly make this again. Even my 10 month old loved it. Read More

Very Very good. I will make again. I precook ground beef drain it and then freeze it. I also buy green peppers on sale and dice then freeze them. I used frozen beef and peppers in this dish and cut the prep time in half just by making that switch. I also used leftover rice for this recipe. I didn't use any monterey jack cheese... I only used 16 ounces of mozzarella. The results were wonderful! (I should also add that if you do use leftover rice for this recipe only use about 3 cups and omit the beef broth and water. Instead prepare beef boullion in about a 1/2 cup of water and mix into the pan then simmer a few minutes before topping with the cheese.) Read More

This is a really good basic dish. I had to use red bell peppers since I didn't have any green ones but otherwise everything was according to the recipe. For us it needed a bit more seasoning. But for those who prefer more toned down dishes this is perfect. We still greatly enjoyed it & will be making it with revisions now & then for years to come. Read More

I made the recipe exactly the way it was written. It needed more salt and pepper and there was nothing to jump for joy about this recipe. Seemed to be a lot of cheese too. Read More
