      This was great! I used brown rice, so it took a bit longer to cook. Next time I may try the white rice. I also used a whole can of tomatoes, rather than one medium tomato, and we really liked how juicy the extra tomatoes made this dish. And I used a lot more cheese than called for -- we really like things cheesy! Next time I would probably increase the cilantro, too. There will definitely be a next time for this dish -- it's a keeper!
