To us, this tasted like taco on rice, which is a good thing (we like tacos). I followed the recipe except I thought 1 TB seasoned salt was WAY too much, so I just used some regular salt (less than a teaspoon) and added some paprika, chili powder, and cayenne pepper. An extremely easy recipe, and it is filling and good. I served some dry cotija cheese to put on top, and that was really good. Next time I would maybe add tomatoes or red bell pepper and olives to make it a little prettier; maybe some cilantro, too.

Weird recipe.... My kids thought it was okay and my husband actually took a bit of the leftovers to eat (in a tortilla) for lunch today, but I certainly will not make this again. It reminded me of dog food. The consistency was way too thick, it was bland brown in color, and all I could taste was the refried beans. Also, I think there must be a mistake in this recipe - 1 TABLEspoon of seasoned salt AND 1/4 teaspoon regular salt?? I just used 1 teaspoon of seasoned salt and it was too salty for our taste. Maybe this recipe could be better if you add more water, use regular beans instead of refried, and use way less salt....

Simple, simple, simple and the entire family loves it. Made it several times. Only changes were 1 can of Rotel instead of green chiles and mixng the cooked rice into the mixture instead of serving it on top of the rice. Great dish!!!

This is the best!! I was looking for a simple recipe in which I had all the ingredients and this is what I found. I got a little worried because it looks kinda ugly, but it tastes so good. Don't skip out on the mustard, it's the best part! My husband loved this reciped and he even added extra mustard to his. Definitly will make again and again! Thanks.

Good for a quick easy meal. Not amazing, but pretty tasty.

I found this recipe after doing an ingredients search for things I had on hand. I wasn't particularly excited about making the recipe, but thought, what the heck. My husband loved it, but it's right up his alley with meat, beans, rice and onions. Me, thought it was so-so. I did not add a tablespoon of seasoned salt because it seemed excessive. I didn't have any green chiles, but will add them if I make this again.

My husband loved this dish!!! I would definately make it again, but I would suggest adding a little rotel for spice. The recepie calls for hot sauce, but you can barely taste it. Overall, it was a good dish!

This is a staple recipe in my house now. Even my two year old loves it. I decrease the seasoned salt and mustard to 1 tsp and leave out the 1/4 tsp salt. Great easy weekday recipe!
