i don't care for "spanish rice" and this was such a welcome alternative. i will definately make this again. i usually serve refried beans w/mexican menu, but this is a great addition. it could have been a little more spicy for me, but that will be easy to remedy next time. great recipe.
My husband liked this although I didn't care for it much. My kids wouldn't eat it either and they usually skarf down anything with sour cream in it. I did use fat free sour cream and maybe that is the reason we didn't care for it much. Thanks, though.
I liked it for a creamy side to use instead of the usual spanish rice. We did kick ours up a bit by using red pepper which I thought made it. Thanks for another great freezable side dish. :)
