    Gave this a try last night and really liked it. I was a little concerned when I realized that I only had 2 cups of rice left instead of 3 cups. I went for it anyways figuring it would just be a little lighter on the rice. I am so glad that I only had 2 cups because I am not sure I would have been able to fit another cup into my 9 by 13 pan. It was almost filled to the rim as it was. My husband really enjoyed it and went back for another huge helping. Thanks for a new way to use ground beef!

    I wish when recipe is posted they would say if you DRAIN the tomatoes or whatever you adding. Black beans said drain and rinse ( that’s normal) If to be drained and you don’t it can mess your dish up! Do you DRAIN the tomatoes or not?
