I made this using regular rice & upped the broth to compensate for the extra cooking time required. Loved the idea of using dressing to fry the onions but found once adding the cream cheese the rice went a bit gluggy, still tasted great but the texture wasn't great. Will make this again with the correct rice as stated and then will re-review. Thanks Reds.
