This recipe rates 5 stars made without any omissions or substitutions. (I find it irritating when recipes are rated after they have been changed to the point that it is no longer the same recipe) This is quick, easy, filling, and has just the right amount of heat.

Great! The only thing that was missing was to turn the burner down to between Medium and Low after you bring it to a boil.

This is a great, easy recipe! I too left out the cilantro. I used a can of corn, drained, in lieu of fresh corn. Instead of garlic powder I minced a couple cloves of fresh garlic and sauteed it along with the onions in the beef. We had ours served with tortilla chips. Next time I'd like to substitute some of the meat for black beans. Great taste and so simple! TIP* Make sure to turn the heat down after you cover the pot to cook the rice!
