Normally my test kitchens are all about a specific recipe. And, while I will share this recipe, it is more a review of a product than anything else. I am not being compensated or anything. I just know that sometimes I see something at the store, wonder if it’s any good, and wish I knew someone who had tried it so I could ask their opinion. I don’t like wasting money especially when it comes to food so I tend to not be very adventurous and just randomly buy something off the shelf.
There is also a trend for everything to be from scratch when it’s shared on a blog. I don’t have anything against made from scratch recipes but I also like quick and easy because, quite frankly, Martha Stewart I’m not and sometimes I just want to bust open a can of biscuits or whatever.
Because I am not prone to trying new things just willy nilly, I have no good reason for why I tried this McCormick season packet but a few weeks ago that’s just what I did. Turns out it was a pretty good idea because the kids love it. I like it because it’s simple and easy, and gosh darn it sometimes that’s all you’re looking for come dinner time 😉
In case you’ve been wondering how it tasted or you’re just looking for something new to try, this gets a thumbs up from the Hadding test kitchen.

This looks pretty good. Does this feed your whole family or do you need to double the recipe? Thanks! -Kristina Croley
The tomatoes are surprising. Looks good. Will have to try.
The two times I've made it Rob wasn't home to eat dinner and there was a little left. I would probably add a little bit more chicken and maybe another can of beans, and make extra rice for the whole family.
I thought so too but it sure is good! In theory you can eat it on a tortilla but I found it to be too juicy for that.
