It's a snap to change the spice level in this popular rice side dish by choosing a milder or hotter salsa. It's a delicious way to round out burritos or tacos when the clock is ticking. —Molly Ingle, Canton, North Carolina

"This is such an easy recipe. I made this tonight as a side for our tacos. The only thing I'd like to point out is that mine came out very thick/heavy. It says it makes 5 servings but I think it's more than that just because you can't eat a lot of it. I also used a salsa verde that wasn't very chunky and it still came out great."

"Excellent recipe as is. It can be made spicier by using a hot salsa or adding Red Hot to taste if you like hotter."

"Very tasty. I used tex-mex cheese (blend with pepper jack cheese) for extra spice and a peach salsa."
