I made this for my work Christmas party. Being the only vegan, I needed to make sure there was something I could eat! I doubled the recipe, which doubles beautifully, and everyone loved it! Very simple to make and will now be one of my go to recipes!

This is very easy and very tasty. I subbed red lentils and white basmati rice as that was what I had on hand. I also used homemade salsa.I would definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe

Great easy recipe! I did add chopped kale and some Cayenne pepper. I also substituted pinto beans and fresh hot salsa. My husband and I loved it!

Came out a little soupy, but was otherwise good.

Two quibbles: this is not a casserole, and it took a lot longer than the stated time. However, it was quite tasty and very easy to make. I had my doubts while it was cooking, and I did add some Old El Paso taco seasoning (about a tablespoon). I used a whole can of green chiles, too. Very healthy recipe that I will make again. Thanks.

I've made this a few times now and my kids, aged between 8 and 1, still love it! I leave out the chili powder, and have used a little mild taco sauce when I don't have enough salsa. Other than that I follow the recipe and it's fantastic. I like to serve it on top of a pile of mashed potatoes. Yum!

Very good ... used turkey stock instead of vegetable, and added some yogurt-garlic dip after it cooled off. YUM!

Really enjoy this recipe. I used it as a side dish so I found it makes a whole lot more than 4 servings. I paired it up with Sweet & Spicy Chicken so I cut back the salsa in 1/2 so the 2 dishes didn't compete with each other, that worked great. The only other thing I'd do next time is cut back the stock about 1/4 cup so I can cut back on the cooking of the rice/lentils. I found the rice was cooked in 30 min but there was still abit of liquid left to cook off. Awesome recipe, thanks for sharing Derf.

This meal was eazy to make and tasted good too. I toned down the spices and it still tasted great.
