"I've made this recipe twice. Once with the original recipe (which was about 3 stars) and the second time I wanted to make a meal of it so I added some leftover chicken and it was a hit! So from now on we will be making this with chicken (so much better) and a side salad to round out the meal. Hope this helps!"

"Delicious. Even my dad, who doesn't like cottage cheese or sour cream, had seconds."

"This was good, but not great. It definitely needs something extra, so I'll have to play around with it next time I make it. I'll definitely be adding more cheese, as it seemed to be almost non-existent among all the rice."

"This was not quite as flavorful as I had hoped, but it was a nice side for spicier mexican dishes and I would make it again, although I would add a little more onion and some garlic I think."
