    This recipe was simple yet delicious! I did spice my rice with guajillo chile powder and a little cumin, but that was the only tweaking I did. My family loved it, even my picky eater. I served it with Dump Pepper Lime Chicken and they paired together well. I will definitely put this into my menu rotation. Yummy!

    This dish had a lovely flavour, but was very mild. For a little extra kick, I added a sprinkle of creole seasoning & I think this made all the difference. Served with Recipe #286577 for a great dinner. Thanks Mary for sharing. Made for ZWT4

    Very good and lovely appearance. I am unable to buy chayote in northern Wisconsin so substituted with summer squash. I did add Italian seasoning and lots of pepper. I also used leftover rice. (Just love incorporating leftovers into a meal.) This would be wonderful with fresh herbs like basil. I had this with Recipe#241933, Recipe#155369, and Recipe#267975 for a great meal. Thanks for sharing a keeper! Made for ZWT4 for the Flying Dutchess’.
