Quick and easy side dish for a Mexican meal! I like this better than "Spanish Rice" and I really liked the creamy texture, and tang of the cheddar. I think it could do with some jalapeño or something to give it a little kick, but over all, we really enjoyed this! Thanks Donna! :)

Maybe I did something wrong, but this came out the consistency of cottage cheese and tasted terrible. I tried to add both ketchup and salsa and I still could not get a good flavor. Any suggestions?

This is a great recipe, I served it tonight with Beef and Bean Burritos and everyone in my family loved this meal. I have to confess that I didn't exactly make it low fat. I used extra sharp cheddar and low fat sour cream. I have this recipe already in my cookbook and will be giving a copy to my mother who really liked it and asked me for it. Thanks for a great recipe.
