      The olives really were a nice touch, but it wasn't really anything we would make again.

      Wonderful. The green olives really added a nice taste. I think I'd increase the oregano, garlic powder and cumin to 1/4 teaspoon to start with the next time I make this. I cooked 1 cup of dry rice and add all of it by mistake but it did not matter. Still tasted great!

      I made this for for a group of 23 Native men and boys; they left nothing behind. That says it all. A chef at the feast we attended suggested adding wild rice to the casserole; will definitely try that next time.
