This was very easy to make and tasted great. I used a leftover rice dish that already had zucchini, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant and loads of flavor, so my rice was a little wetter than what the recipe probably called for. I compensated by adding extra flour (about 1/2 cup extra in total). I also sauteed the croquettes in olive oil. My son ate them with salsa, my daughter ate them with sour cream and my husband and I just ate them!

Based on other reviewers' comments, I cooked the rice in chicken stock. Also, doubled the cheese. This recipe made five patties for us and we loved it as a terrific way to recycle leftover rice. We'll be making this again.

Very good texture, but a bit bland. I will add more cayenne next time and will probably cook the rice in stock instead of water.
