DH and I really liked this. I used leftover cooked chicken and went for the full fat evaporated milk! I also added 1/2t. salt to the turkey cheese mixture. It's like a layered dish with rice on the bottom, then a quiche-like upper layer. The quiche-like consistency plus the peppers and wild rice fooled my mouth into thinking there was sausage in the casserole - a good thing since it didn't have the fat content of a sausage dish. I will definitely make this again!
