MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 31, 2014

My whole family loved this dish. It's one of those dishes that is easily adaptable to what you have on hand. I didn't have mexicorn so used canned corn plus a little red bell pepper; was out of taco sauce so used picante sauce. I also used up some leftover Mexican style rice from a previous meal. All worked great. Looking forward to making it again with the provided ingredient list!

Quick, easy and delicious. I used canned chicken and ready rice (the 90sec microwave kind) and it was still amazing. Love the addition of cilantro. Will definitely make this again. Great potluck dish!

MY REVIEW

I made this for dinner tonight with a nice pan of cornbread. The men at the table asked for seconds. I will definitely make this dish again soon! I love the fact that everything in the dish is healthy; the only change I made was to use brown rice, and roasted my own peppers.
