      This was a really good meal. My husband is Cuban and is very picky about meals with rice. Everything I've tried in the past just didn't stand up to par. But this one we ALL really enjoyed. I gave it 4 stars because we thought it needed just a little more spice to it. But overall it was very good and so easy too!

      Everyone in my family really liked this - seven of us, ages 5-39. I made this following the directions - minus the onion because I didn't have one and with regular rice instead of instant. I allowed it to simmer 22 minutes instead of 5 and the rice was fully cooked. I also added some left over rice from the night before (heated before added). Before adding the cheese I put the food into a 9x13 baking dish. After I added the cheese I put it in the oven @ 375 for about 5 minutes. The cheese was melted and nice & stringy.

      I agree that it needs a little kick or spice to it, especially because when you hear or read "Fiesta" in a dish you think of course about Mexican food - but I also think of spicy. I had read the previous reviews and opted to not add additional spices because I wanted to taste for myself what it needed. I think red pepper flakes might do the trick.

      I made this on 5/21/10 for the " Farm Cooking " event in the Cooking Photos forum.(also for mine and SO's dinner ;) ) Due to what was on hand, a couple of changes were made. Instead of stewed tomatoes, fire roasted diced were used. I only had 1 cup of rice, so the amount of water was adjusted. And Mucho Gusto Taco Seasoning Mix was used for the taco seasoning. As you can see by the photo, I added a bit of cheese to the top for a garnish( I love cheese :) ).We felt that it needed a bit more of a " kick ",so if this is made again, I'm going to add some crushed red pepper flakes. I think that if you are making this for kids or people that don't like real spicy foods this is great. Thanks for posting and " Keep Smiling :) "
