    I adjusted the spices slightly and used a tomato puree instead of salsa and it came out really great, everyone loved it! Will make again as the base for burrito bowls

    Soooooo delicious! This is going to be a regular for us.
    Definitely not Mexican and the measurements were all off. Mexican rice is more than just seasoning of various kinds...

    Turned out great! Served with garlic green beans / wilted greens mix and both picky husband and 2-year-old loved it! Easy, didn’t take long. Make sure you use a salsa you really like.

    want to kick it up a little in flavor and add a little heat? knock out the olive oil for sriracha oil. add green onions too.

    Easy & delicious! i forgot to buy 2 cans of pinto beans so only used 1 & the seasoning was perfect! i used basmati rice also & used this as a filler in a tortilla. yummy

    Easy and tasty. Going to look for a way to kick it up a notch. Maybe some more salsa.

    I used medium heat salsa and I ended up adding almost a tbsp of sugar at the end and I love it.

    My gravy was too saucy and i forgot to drain my rice so it was a bit soggy. But the taste was good so i know ill better myself next time. This is my first time cooking...

    The idea is solid - but the measurements and directions should be made more accurate. I also added peppers. I would make this again, with a lot more liquid.
