    I have a saved recipe for Spanish rice casserole. I wanted to change the recipe to double size--8 servings--and add a note to myself. I can't figure out how to save the updated version. I always get the original when I pull it from my saves. Is there a way to have the notated recipe ?

    I like to cut the amount of ground beef in half and add some green lentils and increase the liquid slightly. 1/4 cup green lentils 1/2 cup water Put lentils and water in a covered sauce pan. Bring to a full boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Add to beef and tomatoes and rice mixture.

    Used 1 1/2 of hamburger. Added 1/4 cup of chunky salsa to compensate for the additional meat. Other than that followed to a T. Thanks.. definite keeper.

    This tasted just like a recipe I lost after years and years (my Mom's). <br/>...tho' the brown sugar and chili sauce were different. Loved it all! <br/>Thanks. I always served cornbread and a green vegetable or salad. <br/>(Kids used to love mine--now all grown up.) A winner. Thanks. Gramma BB

    Kittencal, I had to change this recipe and don't like to make major changes to your recipes, however I did not have chili sauce so I used some of your enchilada sauce Recipe #168653 I had made for another recipe and frozen. Otherwise I followed the recipe and added the fresh cilantro and green onions on the top of the casserole. My BF loved it! It turned out great. Thank you and next time will make sure I have chili sauce.
