      Really excellent! I cooked the rice the night before and refrigerated it. I then added the rest of the ingredients the next morning and chilled. All it took was heating (I put extra cheese on top) and it made a great side dish for a carne asada meal. Great for a large crowd!

      We loved this casserole. To make it more of a meal, I added a can of rinsed and drained black beans. I imagine to get even more protein in there you could add some crumbled tempeh. We'll try it that way next time!
