  • I made the recipe called Cheesy Chicken Black Beans and Rice Chili, BUT I used the Red Beans and Rice Mix instead! Also, I used chicken broth instead of the 2 cups of water it called for and it was excellent! They really should put this recipe under BOTH rice mixes!

    Michelle- On the review page, I just added my review. I actually made the recipe "Cheesy Chicken Black Beans and Rice Chili", but I made it with the Red Beans and Rice Mix and it was excellent! This recipe starts off cooking the chicken (5 minutes), then remove the chicken. Then add the Rice Mix with other products, bring to boil and then simmer for 15 minutes, then add chicken and cook for 10 minutes more. I covered it for all cooking times, and the beans were very soft! Maybe this will help you! Good luck!

  • Delicious & smoky, but too salty. I'll try some of your low sodium products, but I fear the prepared side-dish marketplace is going to drive me away to preparing my own. I have my own salt! Let me put on how much I want!
