Pace® Picante Sauce
uncooked quick-cooking brown rice
canned black beans, rinsed and drained

This one's a keeper! I made this tonight and my father, a discriminating (meaning picky) eater, declared it "wonderful"! I used regular cooking brown rice, added a package of dry onion soup mix and cooked. Added the beans, canned corn (that's what I had) and salsa after cooking. I'd give this six stars if I could!
I didn't have quick-cooking rice, so I just cooked some brown rice and added the salsa, beans, and corn. It tasted a little flat, so I added some chili powder and cumin - those really rounded out the flavor!
When I make a recipe for the first time, I always follow as it is written. I thought this was pretty good as written, hense giving it four stars. It was very easy to prepare! I did end up adding more salsa, and water, because I thought it was a little dry. Next time I plan on adding some cumin and a can of green chiles, as I think it still needed something. I did use the Medium Pace, and might use hot next time as my husband and I like things spicy.
Good combo of flavors and healthy! I put mine inside of a whole wheat tortilla. Yum!
added monterey jack cheese and it was fantastic!
Ok, I apologize 1st. I made or used this recipe today. With several changes. But I liked the recipe and used it for my version.
Used regular white rice, no black beans(didn't have any), 1 can of corn and onions and peppers. Put it all in the rice cooker. Put in the salsa and then added water to the correct line on the pot.
So I know it is totally not this recipes version, And I will get the eye rolls, but I really feel both versions are great.
Be nice to me...:)
I just used salsa instead of picante sauce because they didn't have it at the grocery store. It was delicious!
We have been a huge fan of Pace® Picante Sauce for years. This was so easy and delicious. I left out the corn and beans and it was still great. Why oh why did I not think of this sooner?
I can't imagine having to add other spices unless you're not using Pace® Picante Sauce.
