Big crowd pleaser! I made some minor changes: added sour cream along with medium salsa to the soup. I sauteed the onions prior to adding to the casserole. I used less worcestershire sauce. For the rice, I used a 6 oz. box of Near East rice pilaf mix. Before setting the casserole on the buffet table, I sprinkled some shredded cheddar and french fried onions over the top. This flew out of the dish and fed 6 of us (3 grown men included) and went well with fresh green beans. The medium salsa gave it a nice kick. We all loved it!
