WAHOO! This was GREAT! Made it for the first time to take to a covered-dish Super Bowl party--it was a huge hit with both men and women. I didn't have a mirliton on hand, so I used a medium zucchini, chopped and parboiled, instead. Then I used the zucchini water to cook the rice. Everyone just gobbled it up. Thanks for sharing a terrific recipe!

This was really easy and fun to make. The whole family enjoyed it. I did not have any cream of mushroom soup so I sub a half of cup of lite sour cream. I will make this again.

This recipe was amazing. I followed it exactly with the exception of using cream of mushroom soup. I used condensed mushroom soup and a bit of soy milk. My whole family LOVED it!

This was great! I made a dirty rice recipe a few months back with chicken livers and gizzards that seemed to take forever to make. It was wonderful-- if you like gizzards and liver, which my husband does not. I made this tonight as a concession to him, and I'm really glad I did. I did cut the celery back to 2 stalks, the ground beef to a pound, and I had to use dried minced onion rather than fresh. This was a little wetter than the other recipe I made, but not in a bad way... it was almost creamy. We added extra tabasco to our bowls. I didn't use the mirliton, and in place of onion and garlic salts, I used powders and added a half a teaspoon of salt. Cooked the rice in beef broth cause we like it that way. I will definitely make this one again. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

Very tasty! I used a little less of the veggie so my children wouldn't complain so much, but i htink I would have LOVED the zucchini in it as well. I did add a touch of garlic and a generous splaash of milk along with the soup as it was very, very thick and didn't want to incorprate with the rice too much. I also only used 3 cups of rice and still had a TON of food. I can imagine this being a highlight at a pot luck dinner. As always a perfectly wonderful PanNan recipe!

Great recipe and I agree that it could be a meal in itself. It was nice and easy and directions was explained really good too. Thanks for posting a good recipe!

Good flavor! Could be a meal all by itself. Pretty easy to make, too. I didn't parboil the chayote squash, and instead diced it up and added it in about 10 minutes before the cream of mushroom soup went in. Turned out fine.
