Personally I love this dish but have made a couple of changes. Instead of american cheese I use 1 bag of shredded cheddar cheese. I also put sour cream on top when I serve it. Read More

I did make some changes as well as halving the portion. We used packaged cheese and broccoli rice mix instead of the Spanish variety. Substituted mozzarella for the American cheese. I chose to season my chicken with onion garlic and chili powders. Layered in a glass baking dish as follows: rice mixed frozen vegetables chicken/green onion mixture cheese and olives. Perhaps using regular onion and fresh-minced garlic would also add more depth of flavour to this dish. Wouldn't make again as there many leftovers that no one wanted to eat... Read More

You could a lot with this recipe. However because are mixing two ingredients that are hot you do not need to bake it for 30 minutes 10 min at best. You could use just about any meat in this rice dish. Read More

I personally thought it tasted OK but the friends I served it to loved it. It was easy to make and I had all those ingredients in my kitchen cabinets. Read More

Pretty good stuff that doesn't require many ingredients. I made my own spanish rice (with brown rice garlic chicken broth and salsa) and then proceeded from there. I will use this recipe again for last minute dinner especially since I would normally have these ingredients on hand. Read More

This recipe hit the spot for my craving for Mexican food. It was easy to prepare (I cooked the rice according to the package directions). I served it with tortilla chips and sour cream and it was enjoyed by everyone. Read More
