I used brown basmati rice, because that's what we had in the cabinets :) It was still a win with everyone (even though some wanted to spice it up a little more which is great that everyone can have spicy or not so spicy) ! Thanks!

This was so simple and tasty! I used brown rice and it worked just fine - we will definitely make this again!

This is indeed comfort food as its best. We loved this casserole. It was so very easy to put together and so very tasty. I served this with a vegetable salad and fresh crusty bread. I will be making this recipe again soon. Thanks Jellyqueen!
