I only gave the recipe 2 stars because I felt this recipe needed a lot of revising. First, it doesn't say whether the rice needs to be cooked or if it should be raw before adding to the crockpot. I decided that it needed to be cooked because I don't think there would be nearly enough liquid to cook the rice while in the crockpot. Second, the recipe was terribly bland. I added chili powder and cumin to give it more flavor. When I put it in the tortilla, I added sour cream and salsa. The sour cream seemed to get lost but the salsa gave the dish the kick it very much needed. I have lots of leftovers, I got 8 servings out of it, but that obviously depends on how much you want to put in the tortilla. One more thing, since the rice was warm from cooking, I set the crockpot on the low setting and it was ready in about 2 hours.
