    we really loved the flavor of this recipe! this was probably my most successful go at rice (i make awful rice...mushy yet still hard in the middle!) i had to alter the recipe a bit to work with what i had on hand. i used a package of yellow saffron rice and added more long grain rice to equal 1 cup, i also cut back on the salt since the yellow rice is slightly seasoned. i used only 1 can of undrained rotel and 1 can of mexican flavored tomato sauce. i omitted the olives, used melted butter instead of veg oil and used some chopped green onions that i had in the fridge. i took it out to stir after 45 min, but there was still lots of liquid and rice was still crunchy. i live at really high altitude, so i baked 15 minutes longer covered. then i baked for the 10 minutes uncovered (i added the cheese in at this point). it worked out pretty well! the rice was just a tiny bit hard in the middle, but i'm certain that i will get it right with more attempts! as i said, i live at high altitude and i have never been able to get rice right...even with my rice cooker! thanks for posting. i can't wait to keep trying til i get this right...this is the most flavorful spanish rice i've ever made!!

    Excellent... even tho I made a few changes. ( bad me... :) ) I used brown rice, regular Rotel tomatoes, left out the olives (personal preference), and added chopped celery. I put every thing in a cast iron stove-to-oven casserole and brought it to a boil. Covered the pot and baked for an hour. Let sit for 15 mins while I was getting dinner ready to put on the table. This is some seriously good stuff.... and it reheats well the next day as well. Thanks for posting this recipe... I appreciate it!

    Wonderful side dish! So easy to prepare and the instructions were very good. I will make this often. I may try without the olives as I have a few olive haters. I believe it would still taste great! BJW

    Delicious and very spicy! Easily made a half recipe (2 T oil) which was perfect for dinner. Dump, stir and bake, a side dish doesn't get any easier than this. Would be a great way to add flavor to a simple dinner. Could also be made less spicy with Milder Rotel in the green can. Thanks, Puffalump, for posting!
