This was ooey-gooey dee-liciousness! I used leftover rice from the Chinese restaurant, added some garlic, cumin and chili powder. Next time, I want to add shredded chicken and stuff poblano peppers. Thanks for posting!

I have every intention of making this recipe as is, but I must confess my first try at it was altered to create a main dish for my "must have meat" family. What I did was brown some ground chuck and then seasoned it with some tomato sauce mixed with 1 pkg of dry taco seasoning mix. Other than that I followed your recipe word for word. I am not sure what you would call it, but I lucked out and everybody loved it! We talked about making burritos or mexican lasagna out of it next time. With that being said, I am going to make the dish just as intended as a side dish to go with a grilled flank steak. I can't wait to try it as intended! Thanks for the great recipe! :)

Tell Jackie this is incredibly, sinfully good. THe smell of the chilies put me off, but once I stuck it in my mouth... OMG! Sinfully rich, a little bit sweet, cheesy, and so much the better the next day. YUM! I can see this being super with some chicken breast baked on top of it and a green salad. I am becoming an addict.
