Reviews for Fiesta Cheese Rice
"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"
"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."
"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."
