Wonderful! My husband and I scarfed this down, and it was one of those casseroles that was even better the next day. The leftovers didn't last long. Also, I substituted arborio rice in the same amount as the white rice called for. It gave the whole thing a creamier texture. Definately one I'll be making again.
We really liked this one, even my picky husband and mother. You can definitely taste the cumin in this, which I hadn't really cooked with in the past. It's a pretty flavorful dish. Make sure to get the rice done. I didn't quite leave it long enough. My husband suggested to use chicken broth instead of the water. I think it was fine with the water personally. Overall very good and easy.
This was so easy and really delicious. Hubby wanted it two nights in a row. I used extra cumin because we love it and I used the whole can of chicken soup because I used extra onions. Used Texmati rice and it was excellent! Thanks Veronica!
