Meet the Cook: Like most farmers, my husband loves chili. And with all of the vegetables, cheese and meat in it, this quick dish makes a real meal-in-one. I serve it frequently in fall and winter. I began cooking young. My mom taught me a lot...so did years of 4-H! My husband and I have a dairy farm, and we also make maple syrup. I'm the mother of two small boys. They don't care for the olives in this recipe - but the rest they eat right up! -Katherine Brown, Fredericktown, Ohio

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 4, 2014

This was good......just added a salad to make a complete meal. It could have used a little more seasoning, which is something easily taken care of and is a matter of personal taste, and I did add more water as it was cooking - quite a bit more - maybe as much as one cup. I'd add a little, then more when I checked it again, and I did that several times. I thought I may have detected a grain or two of rice that wasn't quite cooked through, but all in all the rice seemed to have been fine. Adding a little more water or tomato juice and cooking it a bit longer is all it needs to insure that the rice is cooked. I like this dish...simple, quick, easily tweaked to satisfy personal taste, and it tastes good. I will make it again.

I also had a hard time geting the rice cooked all the way , but other than that it was very good.

This was extremely tasty, the blend of flavors was just right. However, I had trouble with my rice cooking even though I followed the directions exactly! Very annoying. I think in the future I will precook my rice. But I will make it again.
