  • THANK YOU so much! I made this last night! It was THE BEST on a cool night! Served with corn bread and added some turkey sausage and the hubby raved…unfortantely, I can’t get my three year old daughter to touch anything like this…she will eat the rice… but won’t go near beans, etc…. hopefully we will have better luck with baby boy! I made this in no time. Thanks for such a yummy, healthy, flavorful recipie!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

    • I am so glad you liked the recipe, Theresa! :) This recipe has become one of our “go-tos” since it’s so tasty and super quick to throw together. I was just looking at the photo and realized that I forgot to add in the optional ingredients list that I had added a little bit (handful) of finely chopped red bell pepper (that’s where the red is coming from in the photo). Anyways, thank you so much for letting us know that you enjoyed the recipe!

  • We made this the other night too, and it was great! Both the girls gobbled it up. Next time, I think I’m going to add some diced tomatoes and corn too. It was definitely filling, and the leftovers will make a great lunch wrap. Thanks, Heather!
