      This was very tasty. I added chopped black olives and used 2 cups cooked brown rice. I just mixed the ingredients, using only the juice from the Ro-tel tomatoes (no added water), topped it with the cheese and heated it in the oven for about 20 minutes.

      Danzy, this was wonderful, simple and such a great budget meal. I added a little jalapeno, and some chopped olives with the cheese. My husband could not stop complimenting it and ate two plates full!! Thanks for sharing it.
