    I was not sure about the recipe after reading the comments, but I tried it anyway. I cooked rice and the meat & veggies in separate pots, then mixed them together in same pot, mixed in seasonings and used 1 can of ranch style beans. It was excellent this way, instead of layering where flavors didn't tie in together. kids & husband LOVED it!!

    The meat had too much chili and the cream of rice layer had no flavor. I ended up throwing this away. If you want to make this, I would suggest adding refried beans (instead of kidney beans) and cheese with the meat. I would eat it with tortillas and go easy on the chili!

    I topped with polenta instead of Cream of Rice. It was very good.
