    Normally, I do no send in to review recipes, but I had to share this... spicy Rice, Bean & Cheese Skillet was out of this world. When my picky husband says "this is a keeper", then I know I have hit the ******************************************************************************************** cumin as recommended by the other reviews. This is fabulous and will be a regular go-to in my recipe folder! We did add sour ***** on top which was the "icing on the cake".

    This is a good, basic recipe. I added some chopped onion, chili powder and cumin powder. Various spices, vegetables and beans could be used. Guacamole, salsa and sour cream would also be great on top. Whatever you have available, this recipe will turn out great!
