A prime example of how I don't stick to a recipe. I went to buy a package of spanish rice but found an all in one meal on sale cheaper than the rice package

Step 1: From the Pantry

our local grocery often has Steakums on sale, buy one get one free, thats about 3lbs of meat for $5.us I used 8 steaks because I like to double them
Betty Crocker complete meal with rice  (taco flavor)
you can use any rice your family enjoys
 1 can of kidney or black beans
 tomato sauce or salsa of choice
 cheddar cheese
 garlic (not pictured)
 spinach (not pictured)

Step 2: The Filling

I precooked the can of beans with a heaping spoonful of chopped garlic in the microwave. I sort of followed the directions on the complete meal package for the stove stop method, leaving out the milk. Once the rice and sauce reached a simmer I added the precooked beans and allowed to cook at a simmer until most of the moisture was absorbed. I then added half a package of left over spinach and once it was heated, 3 slices of cheese and mixed it all in.. allow to cool slightly and absorb any remaining liquid

Step 3: The Build

I like to take 2 thawed out steakums and overlap them, add a couple of tablespoons full of rice mix to one end of the steakum and roll it up. Spread a 1/2 cup of tomato sauce or salsa on the bottom of an oven proof baking dish and lay the rolled up meat/rice packages in the sauce, cover with another 1/2 cup of sauce and then cover the dish with tinfoil and bake at 350f for 30 minutes

Step 4: Getting Cheesey

after about 30 minutes remove the dish from the oven, take off the tinfoil and skim any fat from the bottom of the dish now place the uncovered dish under the broiler while you grate the cheese (about 5minutes or until slightly browned) now top the dish with the cheese, turn off the oven and allow the residual heat to melt the cheese

Step 5: Serve It

One of these steak rolls is fairly filling especially if you have a side dish or 2 but it has everything IN it so I didn't bother
I plan on doing another version of this dish.
That's great! I'm a huge proponent of adapting a recipe/dish to fit the family's tastes, that's why I say I post guides not recipes. Please let me know what changes you make and how it turns out.
