"This is a good hearty winter meal. It can easily be made healthier by using low fat sour cream and cheese."

"My daughter just had a baby and I am staying with her this week. I have been cooking and trying out new recipes each night. My son in law is trying to watch his cholesterol and I wanted to try this since it had no meat. We all loved it! We did leave out the black olives, and the store did not have mexicorn (I just used the niblets corn). I served it with a spinach and fruit salad and cornbread. We were all full and I will make this again when I get home for my DH."
"This was fantastic! My family loved it, especially my 11 yr. old who ate almost 1/2 the recipe all by himself! After we all left the table with happy tummy's he kept going back for more! I didn't have any rotel tomatoes, so I added regular diced tomatoes and a 4 oz can of diced green chili's. I also cut the sour cream in half and cut the Mexican cheese blend in half as well. We don't like olives so I just left those out and topped with fresh cilantro right before serving. My DH, oldest son and I all added a bit of taco sauce to ours just to spice it up. Served this with some tortilla chips and we were all really happy!"
"Excellent! I'd give it more stars if I could. I only made a few changes for personal preference. I cooked the rice in vegetable broth for more flavor, I used yellow onions instead or red and green olives instead of black. This one is going into my cookbook as a regular! Thanks!"
"Just served this for my mom's 95th birthday and we were all very pleased. I had just read that nonfat Greek yogurt is a great substitute for sour cream, so I made that switch. Worked great. Thanks so much for sharing!"
"This was really delicious. My carninvorous hubby even raved!! I used light sour cream, so it needed a bit of extra cooking time to absorb the liquid and get nice and creamy. Great with one of the prepackaged southwest salads!"
"This was so YUMMY! My 8 year old who would live off pancakes or mac n cheese loved this so much she said she'd ask for it over those 2 choices any day! Here's the changes I made to this recipe: 2 bags of Uncle Ben's whole grain brown rice in the steam bags. Makes the rice in 90 seconds! In a long glass casserole dish I mixed the rice with a can of mexicorn (drained it), 2 cans of mexican chili beans (didn't have any black beans), 1 can rotel, 1 can diced green chilies, 1 cup chunky salsa, 1 cup sour cream, and I sprinkled some taco seasoning in and mixed everything. Over the top I layered cheese slices and sliced black olives and baked at 350 for 35 min. I took it out and mixed in the cheese and olives and sprinkled mexican cheese over the top and baked an additional 15 min. We served it with small flour tortillas, sour cream, and salsa to make wraps. It was so delicious!"
"This was really yummy and really really filling. A perfect one-dish meal. I couldn't find mexicorn or diced tomatoes with green chilies, so to spice it up I added about 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/4 tsp cumin powder and 2 tsp chili powder. I have to agree with some others that it was a tad soupy. Next time I will drain the tomatoes or stir in 1/2 cup crushed nacho chips. Will definitely make this again."
"This was very good. My daughter loved it. I wanted to cut the calories so I cut the cheese in half and used fat free sour cream. Mine turned out a bit soupy so next time I will use more rice or drain the tomatoes. thanks for sharing"
"Very hearty!! I added corn, and instead of sour cream added a can of cream of mushroom soup. I will definitely make this again!!"
"This was quite good, although it was a bit time consuming to make for a weeknight supper. Instead of black beans I used pinto beans, and I used some frozen corn and greek yogurt instead of sour cream as well as about 2 cups low fat Mexican blend cheese. I think next time I made this I would use black beans as per the recipe's recommendation. BF liked this too. I added hot sauce to this too. Thank you!"
"I had left over brown rice so I tried this recipe. I loved all of the different flavors. I did add green pepper. I will be making this again although I will be using reduced fat free cheeses and sour cream. This is also gluten free."
"We make this frequently and especially for potlucks. We are always asked for the recipe. Our family doesn't like things too spicy, so we use diced tomatoes without chiles. ( OK, one of us does like it spicy, but we just make him add salsa when it's served.) We also are not fond of olives, so we leave them out, too. We never remember to leave off the top layer of cheese until the end--we always add it before baking and then bake for 30 minutes and it has always come out fine that way. Thanks for a great and super easy recipe!"
"Very good! I used rotel with habaneros, no olives, all sharp cheddar cheese (cheaper than buying two different kinds!), and I cooked the onion prior to adding it since I don't really like the raw onion taste. Great with or without chips. Thanks for posting this!"
"Given the great reviews, I was surprised and disappointed to find this recipe fairly lacklustre. I followed the recipe pretty closely, so I'm not sure if my taste is just very different or what.
It's kind-of bland, and tho it smelled awesome while it was baking, the flavours really didn't come through. It's edible, but I ended up adding siracha to me serving just to give it a bit more kick.
It was fine, and easy to put together, but I doubt I'll make it again."
"My whole family loved this one. I added ground turkey and served it with a side of guacamole and tortillas MMMMM!!!! It is a VERY forgiving recipe many different ways to suit a picky eaters taste.Will definately keep this one in the dinner rotations Thanks for the great idea"
"Very good! Added cilantro as garnish plus hot sauce."
"This was so good. My boyfriend is not a fan of cooked sour cream so I left it out & we added it as needed after. I think it's a little better that way so we can control the quantities a little better too. We did add some crushed Doritos to the top about 10 mins after taking it out for added crunch. Yum!"
"Made this delicious brown rice texmex casserole for a potluck dinner tonight. So sad that there will be no leftovers for me as this dish will be gone in minutes! Love all the ingredients and would not change a thing. I will definitely be making this recipe again and will place it in my Best of 2012 recipes."
"Excellent. Even my picky 13 year old daughter loved it. I did modify it some based on the ingredients I had on hand."
"Soooo good! Whole family enjoys it. Have made this recipe a few times now. If you'd like to add meat, just cook/season chicken or beef as you would for tacos or fajitas and add it to the recipe. Thank you Sweety SJD for posting this!"
