    Loved it and will make again! Big hit with the family! I do not like cheese so I did not put any in the rice which made serving a bit messy, but still delicious!

    This was a big hit, will make again! Everyone loved it! I am not a cheese ***** so I did not put any in the rice, which made it messier when serving, but I did put cheese on the top for the family leaving a no cheese spot for me! Very easy to make!

    Love It!!! I added a can of black beans and used one cup of rice instead. It is delicious!
