"I thought this recipe was anything BUT gooey and bland. I used brown rice and because I forgot to get onions, I substituted 1 1/2 t. onion powder. Still came out great but next time I want to use regular onions. :-) I was expecting there to be more liquid (like regular chili) but maybe with "Casserole" in the name, there isn't supposed to be. Will definitely make again. Avery"

"This was absolutely wonderful! I only had mild Italian sausage, so used that. So easy! So many complements! I will cut the salt to 1/2 t. next time. Everything else I will keep the same."
