1 (15 ounce) can
1 1/2 cups
4 1/2 cups
salt and pepper to taste
adobo seasoning, divided
uncooked white rice
I LOVE these beans! I've made them a few times and it is the quickest, easiest recipe, and it's great to take to work the next day. I also did not put any seasoning into the rice, and I cannot find Adobo anywhere so I found a recipe online to make your own: 1 TBS oregano, 2 TBS garlic powder, 2 TBS onion powder, and 1/5 TBS cumin.
Fast and easy but awful. Way too much adobo too salty. I had to add anothe can of beans for it to feed 4 people.
This went over great in my house! I added a chopped onion and a few cloves of garlic. The kids loved it! Fast.. quick and easy.. Winners in my book!
Pretty good and really fast and easy. Reminded me of meatless chili. I added a little bit of ground red pepper for a little more zing.
This was amazingly wonderful! I run a daycare in Massachusetts and thought that the kids would think it to be a little too weird, but they all loved it (except my son, who does not like rice, not the recipe's fault, LOL)! Will certainly make again!
Loved it! A big hit with my husband and friends. Will definitely make again.
I have made this recipe several times, and really liked it. BUT yesterday was the first time I used the adobo seasoning. This really killed it for me. The previous reviewer suggested leaving out all the "italian" seasonings because their mouth was confused. I have to agree that with ALL ingredients, I didn't like it as much. My 4 yr old gobbled it up, as is...but my husband and I did not enjoy it. It is an easy recipe. When I first found this, I was looking for some sort of beans and rice recipe that was not like black beans and rice (something different?). Without the adobo, it's like spaghetti sauce with beans and we liked it quite a bit. By the way, I did drain and rinse my beans.
Don't use the oregano, basil or thyme or olive oil. This isn't an Italian dish! I tried it your way and my mouth was confused! Getting snowed in can be sooo frustrating. Next time, use bacon grease or peanut oil and ground chiles..or chopped fresh chiles .. use garlic fresh or dried, salt, and LOTS of dried cumin. ( Cumin is what gives Mexican foods their "Mexicaness" ) God bless you!
