Perfect that I found this recipe as the weather is becoming cooler. This is so warm and delicious. In my version, I use whole pinto beans, soy chorizo, finely diced onion, spices and add a good amount of jalapeno rounds. It's more of a chili bean dish and so full of flavor!"

This is so good! The flavors are perfect. I love it as the recipe is, or, for a heartier soup, I add more rice to the pot. Thickens up quite nicely. Then I heat up corn tortillas, cut a few slices of lime, open a beer...LOL! I'm craving it now!"

Delicious! This is a staple in any Mexican home! I used Trader Joe's Soy Chorizo for a healthy twist. It actually realeases no oil nor do you need to add any. Just stir, stir, stir. I also added eggs to the dish for a different twist. Love it both ways.

This is so good on a chilly day. Don't let the recipe intimidate you. I also tried it in a crock pot and the result was just as good! I've also used pork or chicken instead of the beef. Mmm Mmm Mmm!

Yummy! This rice is so good! I was taught by my mom to make the exact same rice but without the carrots and peas. I absolutley love it with the veggies and what a great way to include some in your daily diet.

I've been making these since I was a kid with my Mom. This is a great short-cut recipe. If you have the time to make the tortillas from scratch, by all means do so. Otherwise, for those impromptu guests that arrive, this recipe is a hit!

Ahhhh...I crave Michelada's!! This tasty beverage can be made in a variety of ways. Why not try them all? My favorite is Marcela's recipe with a few shots of Tapatio Hot Sauce, just like my Tia and Tio make them. Yummy!

Yummy! A breeze to make. Great for a potluck or sit down dinner. Bravo! To the apple and marshmellow reviewers - it's simple. Substitute the banana for the apple and eliminate the marshmellows.
