    A quick, inexpensive tasty meal - perfect for after a work day. It's even faster if you have leftover cooked chicken and rice to use. Another recipe from my mother-in-law.

      Such a simple dish, but very tasty. I like my food very spicy, so I use hot salsa (Pace picante sauce). The whole family loves this dish and it is so easy to put together. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      We have a busy family and this was a busy night for us with church activities. This recipe was quick to prepare and that's a big plus, but what set it apart was that my whole family, all 7 of us, LOVED THIS! I preferred my serving without rice (lower carbs) and I think I'll use less rice next time, but there will definitely be a next time. I had to double the recipe for my family. I didn't have monterey pepper jack cheese, so I used a taco/mexican blend that we had instead.

      For the ease and the ingredients, this should be a five-star. I was swayed because I think it needs a little something else...maybe some chilies. I did add fat free sour cream to the top and ate it with chips for a variety of texture. Overall, easy to make, but my husband wasn't as crazy about it as I was.
