"I've been making this for years since I got the issue in 2002 and I love it! I've added a bit more spice to it sometimes but the original is awesome too! One of my faves! Thank you to the original submitter! - Jamie/indiana"

MY REVIEW

"This was so tasty, plus easy and quick to make. I needed something that would go together fast to accompany meat on one of my nights when i was uninspired but tired of the same old same old same old......filled the bill wonderfully! This would be great with Mexican food too."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 13, 2010

"This was so easy and delicious. I actually cooked in my Turbo Cooker because I do not prefer microwave but I used 10 minute brown rice and 75% reduced fat cheddar and added a cup of baby carrots, a small onion, chopped and two cloves of minced garlic to round it off. Served it with boneless pork chops and was amazed how the flavors popped! I would definitely make this again and again."
