      This was a good quick dinner! Like others, I used low fat/non fat sour cream and ricotta (in much less quantities) and just a sprinkling of cheese on top to cut back the fat. It was still plenty creamy for us. We liked that the red pepper still had a bite, it was a nice contrast to the other ingredients, which were soft. I used brown rice, and halved the spinach. We thought the ratio was good. Next time I will double the chiles to increase the spice! We are big eaters, so this served little more than 2 people.

      Had to make some low fat adjustments like a previous reviewer, but it still came out fantastic! I really liked the taste and texture, and it's good for you too, being high in vitamins A, C and calcium. I used 3 cups rice, 2% cheddar, low-fat ricotta and Greek 0% yoghurt instead of the sour cream (about 3/4 cup). As a result of my adjustments, it was probably less moist, but I think I preferred it that way. My BF and I ate about half of this for a vegetarian main dish. Thank you! Enjoyed the leftovers as well.

      This was delicious, and it was so quick to put together! Also, I was able to use low fat sour cream and ricotta, and the results were still very rich-tasting. I used red bell pepper, but I think next time I'll use roasted peppers instead (I'd prefer the peppers soft, but those who want a little crunch should definitely prepare the recipe as written). Thanks for sharing!
