This is a wonderful casserole! But here is a BIG secret--it's not Paula Deen's, it came from a Pillsbury cook-off recipe from over 30 years ago! I have been making this casserole for years, and it is one of the best comfort foods ever. Personally--I don't care who claims it--it's just GOOD!
I love this recipe and I make it with a rotisserie chicken. The main thing I fine it isn't spicy enough for us so I add about 1/2 a envelope of taco seasoning to it. The taco seasoning just makes it.
This was great! I made a FEW changes...added toasted almonds, subbed green peas for the green beans, subbed shredded cauliflower for half the rice to cut down on carbs and added chicken broth so I could get away with less mayo, ooh and did parmesan cheese and white cheddar for the cheese. That IS a lot of changes, but the basics of the recipe were still the same and it was GREAT! My kids hated it, but my husband and I loved it! :)
This is a very tasty rice dish but not what I would call a casserole meal. Delicious as a side dish but not belly-filling enough to eat alone. I really liked it, though!<br/><br/>I'll make it again! It's good.
This recipe brings back memories for me! My mom used to make it when we were growing up and it was just as great now as I remember. Because it was what I had on hand, I used brown rice and it was perfect.
I really enjoyed this, I just wish it made more for our big family! Next time, I will double it.
Just great. I didn't add the pimientos...we don't like them. But I replaced the rice (didn't have on hand) so I used unthawed hash browns. Delicious. Also layered the top with french onion rings. Easy and food I usually have in the house. I'll be sure to try it with the wild rice next time though.
Followed the directions exactly and used all ingredients listed. Didn't care for this at all. Bland, expensive to make and time consuming. I won't be making this again. Sorry, but I found it tasteless and not worth the effort or expense.
Easy, a complete meal and inexpensive! I used light mayo, Healthy Request Soup and bottled roasted red peppers and it was very good. I think next time I will top it off with the canned French's onion rings. Thanks for the recipe. Carole in Orlando
Delicious comfort food as it's best! Easy to prepare and as tasty as all get out. I topped the casserole w/ herbed stuffing mix and extra grated cheddar... otherwise, I followed the instructions exactly. Definitely a repeater around here! Thanks for sharing this recipe, HeidiSue!
