I make this about once a month and LOVE IT! It’s a great recipe to clear out that last bit of salsa in the fridge, that cup of leftover rice, or those cans of beans that have been in the pantry for awhile. I bought a 12 ounce jar of the adobo sauce and keep it in the fridge, so this recipe is pretty much always ready-to-go in a pinch! I love not having to go to the store for 12 random ingredients for a recipe! Great for leftover for work-week lunch over a bed of lettuce for a salad too! So versatile!

Made these for dinner tonight, LOVED THEM! Very easy to put together, and very flavorful! I will be adding them to our regular menu rotation. Warning, when it says “spicy” it isn’t joking. It’s not like burn your mouth off, but I don’t think little kids would like the heat.

So delicious. I used chicken instead of beans (hubby is not a beans fan, unfortunately). I get a can of chipotles in adobo, puree it, and what ever I have left over, I put in the freezer for the next time I need chipotle peppers. Absolutely delicious. Plan on making it again tonight, as well as a less spicy version for the kids. Thanks for the recipe. We love it.

Love this recipe! Easy to make with ingredients probably already in your pantry. I make it about once a month, and will continue to do so!

Great recipe! These were super easy and quick to make, and they’re super tasty. We’ll definitely be making these again! I did like another reviewer and added cilantro and lime to the rice prior to adding it in…delish! But really the recipe doesn’t require any tweaking…its great just as written.
