This was good and easy. I followed the advice of the reviewers and used half the amount of mayo. I added a little plain yogurt. I would make this again. I like the addition of the jalapeno Read More

Good base recipe. I always have issues with having rice come out cooked when I add it raw to casseroles. I used about a cup and a half of cooked rice from a couple nights before. I sauteed one onion garlic and about a cup of shredded carrots and added that for a little more flavor threw in about a cup of shredded white cheddar and sprinkled a bit on top before baking it long enough to warm all the way through and melt the cheese. I served the hot sauce on the side as I have two kids and they can't stomach super hot food. My kids and I liked this my husband is on the fence. I think the whole amount of mayo is a little too rich next time I might do half sour cream or yogurt. Like I said good base recipe and a nice change from your typical tuna casserole. I'd make this again. GREAT way to use up your leftover rice from dinner the night before or from your chinese food order. Read More

I used cream of chicken soup because I don't like mushrooms and sour cream because I don't like mayonnaise. Other than that I made this just as written. It is completely different from any other tuna casserole I've ever had so if you're looking for something new this is a great recipe to try. It was easy to make and cheap. Read More

Simply delish! I messed with the quantities of the ingrediants (double rice and tuna not of the mayo or soup though) but it came out delish. I also used cream of broccoli instead and instead of jalepeno or hot sauce put some medium level salsa into it. Came out great! Read More

We enjoyed this meal very much and the hot sauce gave it a real edge. It was a bit mushy - possibly because I covered it while baking. We're curious to try it with pasta instead of rice. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

I was looking for a recipe for ingredients I already had on had. This fit the bill perfectly. My changes: I sauteed onion garlic and a mildly hot pepper. Together with a half can of pees I added that to the mix. Also I used Bird's Eye frozen brown rice steamed in the microwave (saves the step on cooking rice). I sprinkled on hot pepper flakes because we aren't shy about spicy hot foods. My husband is not too keen on casseroles but he really enjoyed this! It is definitely a keeper. The recipe was not mushy at all. It might be because of the brown rice which holds up a little better than white rice. It also is more nutritional. Since I am wheat intolerant this is a fantastic substitute for the regular old tuna casserole. Read More

Easy. Good to make in quantity. Very tasty to pile chilled leftovers onto a bowl of mesclun radishes and tomatoes. Read More

pretty good. I found the whole jar of mayonaise seemed a bit much. So I only used 1/4 cup. 1 can of tuna. Triple the rice. Excellent spicy flavor. Even the baby ate some! Read More

Found this recipe accidentally but couldn't resist the name:) Figured what the heck made it one night and wow! easy and a nice change from elbows or pasta. The jalapeno is a great enhancer that I simply would never have thought of but thanks!! (Unfortunately my husband wouldn't let me even allow our felines to taste test!) Read More
