    This was excellent! I made it to take to a potluck and had a couple requests for the recipe. One woman said her son doesn't like rice but he had multiple servings of this! I used cheddar-jack cheese and added 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper. Easy and delish - this one's a keeper! Thanks Jude!

    I thought this was good, but a little bland. My kids really disliked it, but a lot of kids don't like green chiles. I omitted the pimentos, since I didn't have any. I gave mine a good dousing of Chipotle Tabasco and that really helped with the flavor. I think if I make this again I will add some more salt, red pepper flakes, and black beans.

    Very good rice dish, Judy. I didn't have any pimientos, so I diced up some roasted red peppers I had in the fridge. I also used fat-free sour cream, which worked just fine. It went very well with a southwest-style chicken dish I made.

    Very very yummy! We all enjoyed this, even our 18 month old! Very easy too, and we didn't change a thing!
