I planned on making this, but what I ended up with was substantially different. I discovered I only had about 1 T barbecue sauce left, so I made up the difference with salsa. I used 2 cans of corn, which I did not measure, but I think it is more than 2 cups. I think it turned out ok, but I am sure it would have been better as written.

This was surprisingly good! I would have given it 5 stars but my dh thought that the bbq sauce was too strong. I thought it was perfect so i compromised with the 4 stars. Thanks a lot for posting!

I was really shocked about how good this is! Let me start by saying I cut out the step of pre-browning the ground beef. I brown my rice mixture to the desires color, then crumble in the beef and cook it until done, and drain if there is any fat. I used Sweet Baby Rays original BBQ sauce. I was worried the BBQ sauce would over power everything, but it added interest with out smothering out anything else. The cheese amount was alos perfect. I found another quick fix meal that is high in flavor for those no brainer kind of nights!
