Cheesy Shrimp and Rice

Cheesy Shrimp and Rice recipe
photo by:kraft
I made a few changes to add flavor. I added 2 cloves garlic, 1/4 tsp. black pepper, 1/4 c. Parmesan cheese, and 2 Tbs. lemon juice. As good as it was, next time I will use more

Enjoyed this meal! However the sauce was a little hard to melt cheese.
I made this yesterday and it was a big hit! Very simple and easy to make, however, next time I plan to add more cream cheese than the recipe calls for. I would like it to be a little more "saucy". Really good and I plan to have leftovers tonight :)
Great recipe. I read the reviews and saw that others thought it was bland, so I added some spinach and herb dip mix for flavor and my husband said, "Whatever you did, it was good." We'll definetly be having this again!
The recipe, as is, is a little bland. I added lemon pepper to it which added a very nice flavor.
If you like Shrimp and Grits,as we do here in the south, you'll love this fast and easy treat. Serves with a green salad, iit was wonderful!
i thought it was good. now i am reading reviews and never thought to use a flavored cream cheese. i will try it with that next time.
Ok, I really altered this, but used the recipe as a base. I took a pound of medium shrimp (more per plate.), real rice, an 8 oz tub of artichoke & spinach cream cheese, 2 cups of frozen spinach, a jar of marinated artichoke hearts, a jar of marinated artichoke bottoms, some sliced green onions, to taste, and the juice of a lemon. Salt and pepper, of course. I just cooked the rice as I prepared the rest of it, melting the cream cheese first, with a few tablespoons of chicken broth, then adding the artichoke pieces, then the spinach, then the juice of the lemon, and finally the shrimp and green onion. I added some garlic and onion powder and some salt and pepper (white pepper, to keep the sauce from turning funny shades), and mixed the rice in at the end. Very good dinner, got lots of praise from the fam.
I made this last night for dinner, I followed the recipe accordingly and it was very bland. My daughter only ate the shrimp and my husband said that it was good. I wasn't very satisfied with it.
Great husband and I loved it. I did use the garlic and chive cream cheese, sauteed my shrimp in garlic and added garlic powder, fresh pepper, salt, and grated romano/parmesan cheese when the chicken broth is added Light but filling.
You definatly need to spice up the original recipe if not you have a very bland dish. I added salt and pepper, and garlic powder. If I make it another time I will use a flavored cream cheese.
