Review

The rice casserole from last night was okay. The husband liked it (had two helpings!), but I just thought it was okay. It was definitely easy and pretty fast to assemble. I think it was just missing something, but I'm not sure what that was. We ended up putting it in tortillas and making burritos instead of eating it just as a casserole. And I did add some sour cream to the bean mixture. I used Trader Joe's refried black beans for it, and they didn't seem to be quite as moist as regular refried beans. I added probably 1/3 a cup of sour cream. I'd probably make it again, but I don't think it's one I'd put into high rotation.

Hmm, yeah, it sounds like it would be dry to me too. Maybe I'll give that one a go some time and try to add some other things to it.

The sour cream definitely helped...maybe more of that would do it? Or if you had it in a burrito, spread some additional sour cream, salsa, or guacamole on the tortilla to help it a bit.
