      This was delicious! It is hot here and I didn't want to put it in the oven. I just treated it as a stove-top dish, letting it get all hot and bubbly before adding the Velveeta. I did not measure my rice, but it was probably only about 1 1/2 cups, which was perfect. I did add extra water and it was a bit soupy when we ate it; but by the time the left-overs were put up, it was very thick. The corn adds a really nice crunchy dimension. I also cut the salt to 1/2 teaspoon because of the Velveeta and we were happy. I kept tasting the meat mixture, thinking it was bland. I resisted the urge to add any additional seasonings. By the time the cheese melted it was WOW! Weekend Cooker, thanks for a great recipe! I plan on making it again!

      Weekender....This was wonderful. My dh & I enjoyed this comfort dish very much. I omitted the pecans, because of his allergy, I bet its even better with them. I had to sub a red sweet pepper for the green one and I also used ritz crackers because it was what I had on hand. This is a lovely tasty, filling dish. We enjoyed this very much and I will make it again. The flavor was delicious. Made for Aussie Swap #41 :)

      4 Stars, this reminds me of Salmagundi Bake #58786 featured in BH&G Casserole cookbook way back when, which I have loved since a teenager, except for the topping. I don't think the buttery crackers enhanced the taste. For families, how about sauteeing chopped pecans or walnuts in the margarine or butter, or omitting them altogether? For us adults, I would recommend sauteeing the pecans with cayenne pepper or chopping up Hot Pepper Pecans #223198 for a distinctive topping. I would omit the buttery crackers completely. Thanks for posting, these are my combination of flavors. Made for Every Day is a Holiday.
