I received a sample of Legacy Premium’s Beans and Rice Enchilada entree.
Here is what is looks like in the package.
The instructions look easy enough: Boil water, stir in the product, lower the heat and let it simmer for 12-15 minutes, stirring every few minutes.
I followed the instructions and tested it after 15 minutes. I prefer a softer texture so I left it simmering for five more minutes. Then I let it stand for 10 minutes, as the sauce thickens a bit more as it cools.
Here is what the prepared dish looked like in a bowl.
Now for the taste test… It’s good! The family, who by now is very skeptical of my taste tests, tried it as well. Everyone liked it. The sauce is very flavorful, slightly spicy but not overly hot. The texture is excellent. The beans softened up nicely, and the corn added just a hint of sweetness. We had the dish by itself, but I would think it would taste good accompanied by tortillas or tortilla chips. You can also add ground beef or chicken if you like, but it is good on its own. More good stuff about this entree: it has no MSG, no trans fats, uses sea salt and for those concerned, it’s gluten free.
