Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recipe! Great recipe! Make sure you use the exact ingredients it calls for, for instance, the diced tomatoes and green chiles. I forgot to check the size of can it called for and got the small one. The meal was still very good, but lacked alittle more flavor, so make sure you get the larger can (check the ingredients first) DUH! Very filling! Everyone loved it! Will make again for sure!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the ease of preparation and the Mexican flavors of this meatless meal. I love the ease of preparation and the Mexican flavors of this meatless meal. I first discovered it on the back of a 10-minute brown rice box. I most often prepare the recipe using regular brown rice; I simply start the rice first and add it without the water when the recipe calls for it. I fix this recipe frequently, and I like to serve it with tortilla chips for crunch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe makes a great dinner, burrito filler, or dip with tortilla chips. This recipe makes a great dinner, burrito filler, or dip with tortilla chips. My husband and I didnt care for the chunks of tomatoes so the next time I made it I substituted tomato sauce and it is much more to our liking. To make up for the green chiles being absent in the sauce I use a little chili powder. I really like this dish and make it pretty regularly now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This was good, but not great. This was good, but not great. I didn't have any cilantro so that might improve the taste a bit. Also, the cheese was too much. It hurt the taste of the rice. It would be better if each person could add the cheese themselves if they wanted it. However, my 2 yr. old loved it just the way it was.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The first time I made this there was not a lot of flavor. The first time I made this there was not a lot of flavor. I altered the recipe (did not use the green chiles or cilantro and added onions & cayenne pepper) and my husband loved it. I also used a 4-blend cheese. I tried topping it with salsa but my husband wasn't too thrilled although I liked it.

This was a very fast and easy recipe to make and the fact that it is nutritious too is a definite plus. I served this dish in burritos and my fiance, his mother, and sister loved them. I will definitely be making this again and there are so many additions you can make to this recipe as well!

Guacamole, salsa and sour cream would also be great on top. Whatever you have available, this recipe will turn out great!
