I liked this a lot- I'm soooo full right now!! Added a can of chickpeas and served it for meatless Monday. Also used 2 cans of diced roasted green chilies instead of doing the hard work myself. I didn't use all the rice, just as much as the wet ingredients would allow and still ended up with a ton. This will be a great potluck go-to. Thanks for posting!

oh, this was sooooooooo good. I made a couple changes...I followed the previous reviewers advice and added the can of cream of chicken soup. I also used 2 cans of chopped mild chiles in place of the poblanos, and served with a little salsa. Fantastic! I could have licked the plate clean! Thanks for posting.

I thought this was delicious! I added a can of cream of chicken soup because it definitely looked like there wasnt enough sour cream mixture and I didnt have any extra on hand. Definitely will make again!

This was delicious! I will definitely be making this again even though I thought roasting the poblano peppers and peeling them was a bit of a pain but well worth it. My kids loved it too. My somewhat picky 4 yr old told me he wanted to eat it every day! I made it exactly as stated.

For the dryness try: 2 c. sour cream 1/2 cup onion finely chopped 1 small garlic clove finely minced 1/4 c. cilantro finely chopped salt to taste Combine all ingredients and let stand for 5 minutes to blend flavors

I, too, saw this on the Food Network, and couldn't wait to make this dish. It was as great as Aaron had described, truly one of the most flavourful, richest dishes I've ever had, up there with fresh morels sauteed with onion, garlic, salt, pepper, butter and cream. The only thing I'd change (although this dish is perfect for my taste) is the addition of the 1/4 cup of onions that are added to the sour cream. As they go into the baking dish raw, they do not cook completely, and some people I'd normally serve this to aren't too fond of raw, crunchy onions. But, for my taste, the dish is truly perfect as-is. This crunch of raw onions was actually a highlight to my taste buds. Wow! Thanks, Aaron's Mom!

I felt like it needed a little more of the sour cream mix. The taste was very good, but a little dry. I made 1/2 recipe. Will try it again tweaking the moisture a bit.
