    morgainegeiser's Note:

    Beans and rice are usually served separately in Mexico, but, occasionally the two are combined in delicious casseroles. This is quick and easy.

      Pretty tasty. Made for a nice, fairly quick meal. I do admit that I used medium grain white rice instead of brown and used only 2 egg whites. The recipe has both 1 and 1 1/2 tsp chili powder listed, so I used the 1 1/2 which worked pretty well. I also added in some chopped pickled jalapeno for extra heat. Overall, good recipe! Thanks for posting!

      Delicious! I LOVE brown rice and I've been trying to convert the hubby from white rice. This was delicious. I used Unfried Refried Beans for the beans and omitted the egg whites. Thanks will def make again. Made for ZWT 5:)

      Yum! This was very good and easy. My favorite part of a Mexican meal is the rice & beans. I cook lots of brown rice at one time and freeze it in 1 cup bags. Doing that makes this recipe that much easier. Thanks for posting.
