This dish was very tasty! I used diced tomato with cilantro and lime juice. I had this with a big salad. I think next time I will try it with salsa. Thanks!

This was easy to prepare and is a very flavorful dish. I used picante sauce instead of the rotel tomatoes. Actually, I cooked the rice (I only used about 1 1/2 bags of the rice called for.) and the bean mixture ahead of time. Layered it in the bowl as instructed. When I was getting ready to serve dinner I zapped it in the microwave, took it out and topped it with the sour cream and cheese. I put it back in just long enough to warm the cheese, not really melt it. I did eat it as an entree. I think next time I will use one bag of rice to one can of beans and go ahead and mix the rice, beans, and picante together. Heat, then top with the sour cream and cheese to cover the top of the casserole. I served this with a fruit salad and cornbread. Thanks HeatherFeather for a wonderful recipe that's going in my permanent collection!

very yummy, i made with only one package of rice since i am cooking for one person. Also i left out the cheese because i did not have any but the flavor combinations were great. I agree with the suggestion that this would be good with salsa in place of the tomatoes also. This is a good dish for something a little different.

This had an excellent flavor overall, but I agree with Junebug. It was a bit dry because the ratio of rice to beans and tomatoes was off. I also added more cheese. Next time I will use only one bag of rice for this recipe.

What a great combination of flavor and colors. I served this with a Caribbean Curry Chicken Thighs cooked on the grill and it was wonderful. Thanks for a beautiful, tasty recipe.

Excellent! Served with jalapeno chicken enchiladas. Made a super tasty and colorful side dish. I agree this would make a wonderful fast vegetarian main dish, too. Thanks, HeatherFeather, for another great recipe!
