I have made this for big family dinners and it is always a favorite! I did substitute a 16 ounce jar of mild salsa insted of the hotter picante sause and rotel and used pepper jack cheese. Also saved the sour cream for a topping when served. Thanks Merlot!
I made this yesterday for company. It was very easy to prepare. It was a huge hit with everyone! The flavors were very good too. I served this with fajitas, corn and flan for dessert. I will definitely make this recipe again!
This is Great Stuff!! We had it with tortilla chips and everyone raved! I used frozen corn instead of canned, and brown rice instead of white, low fat sour cream worked just fine and I added a can of pinto beans. Next time I will use 2 cans of olives on top instead of just one. Very yummy!!
This could almost be used as chip dip. Really tasty and easy, my favorite combination. Thanks for sharing!
I was looking for some simple bean&rice recipes to keep grocery costs down, and this is probably the best I've tried so far. Great flavor and stands well on it's own as well.
Such a good and easy dish! It's a hit with everyone - even non-vegetarians.
This is really yummy and has become a favorite meal at our house. I've substituted the green onions with leeks on occasion, which works out fine.
No need for meat in a dish this hearty. A great combination of all things Mexican. I served the leftovers wrapped in flour tortillas.
Have been wanting to make this for a long time, but I'd been rejecting it because the fat content seemed excessive. So, I bought some 50% fat pepper jack cheese and decided to take the plunge. I substituted some Greek yogurt for the sour cream and used 1 1/2 cups cheese instead of 3 cups. I also happened to have kalamata olives at home so I used those instead of the usual bland black olives. Could not find Pace brand picante sauce so I used Green Mountain brand medium salsa instead. BF and I were very pleased with the outcome. We added extra hot sauce. Thanks for this recipe Merlot, I'd make it again with low fat adjustments:D
Oh man, this was soooooooooooo darn good. I have been craving Tex-Mex for sooo long and this just hit the spot. I halved the recipe for the two of us and still had some leftovers. I didnt have sour cream so substituted with yogurt. Also, as suggested by some reviewers, i mixed half the cheese in the salsa mix and sprinkled the other half on top during the last 20 mins of baking. We made burritos out of this. The only problem i had, or perhaps a short coming on my part for some reason was that the mix was too watery even after baking for the full time. Maybe next time i should drain the canned stuff. Nevertheless, this was EXTREMELY good. Thanks for sharing Merlot.
