This is one of my son's favorites and it has everything in it to make a meal by itself, but it's also good served with a salad.

OlenAmazing , 2 years agoI found this recipe in the "Use Up Leftovers" section, searching for beans and rice. I always boil pinto beans and make spanish rice. I followed the recipe using these substitutions in place of the minute rice and canned ranch beans. It fed my family of 5 very well with leftovers. My family enjoyed this meal with Tostadas. Very tasty meal! My picky eaters enjoyed it enough to eat around the tomatoes. I will totally make this again and maybe add some ground cumin and some california chili powder. This recipe is warm and filling as well as quick and easy, all the while serving the purpose of using up my leftovers.
Stephmill , 2 years agoVery very good!!! I didn't use any beans (partially because I couldn't find ranch style beans). Turned out great though. Perfect amount of spice. We added a dollop of sour cream to the dish and ate it with both bread and tortilla chips. Yummy!!!
Hellifin , 2 years agoVery good recipe. I used black beans instead of ranch style, mushrooms in place of the tomatoes, subbed 1/2 a LB. of the hamburger for 1/2 a LB. of corizo and use twice as much picante sauce. this is about the 4th time I have made it. love it!!

jmschaub , 3 years agoEasy to make and tastes good
hatchnumber3 , 3 years agoMade this last night and it was good. Instead of a can of tomatoes we just used extra salsa and I also served it over crumbled up tortilla chips (kinda like a frito chili pie). I think I'll add some taco seasoning and maybe another can of beans.
robrtlyn , 3 years agoI'll try this tonight. It was wonderful! I had to substitute chili beans for the ranch beans but it turned out very well. Looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow night :)
elkrug , 3 years agoTried this recipe last night. It was so good we ate the leftovers tonight. It was even better the second night.
vdianellos , 3 years agoIt was great! We made a couple of changes...some intentional some not: We used regular long grain rice and not minute rice. We used chunky salsa and not picante. My wife is gluten intollerant so we couldn't use the ranch beans; we used black beans and used the spices listed on the can of ranch beans. Nest time I want to use a little cilantro and some chopped up peppers (jalapeño, serrano, etc).
Elopeztello , 3 years agoInstead of using the minute rice, I cooked spanish rice and doubled the measurement for salsa; using half medium and the other half hot. Additionally, when I seasoned the meat I used two packets of azafran and some crushed red pepper. Muy delicioso!
EmmaFaye , 4 years agoDelicious. Tastes good when Topped with jalapeño and served with hint-of-lime tostado chips.
