As this was cooking, I was concerned that there might be too much rice, but the end product was delicious. I ended up adding a bit more chili powder 'cause that suited our taste. Served it up in tostada shells and topped it with the cheese. Then I placed the lettuce, olives, tomatoes, avocado, sour cream and salsa and more tortilla chips on the side so my family could dress their own as desired. Flavor was reminiscent of a good super burrito. We all ate more than we should have--you can call me "Gordo" now!
