This recipe has all the ingredients that I love, however I found after 5 hours on low, the rice was a glutenous mass and it was dry. Maybe adding all the cheese at the last minute would help and less cooking time.

I also found the recipe to be a little dry and done very quickly. I am using a 6qt slow cooker so maybe that's why. It is very tasty though!

I added some chicken to it to complete the meal. It was done by 4 hours max. Added the 1 cup diced chicken in the last 45 minutes. We thought it was a bit dry. Will try next time with some more salsa or a can of Rotel to heighten the moisture.
