"This recipe is awesome just as is. I've also made it with brown rice. Love it with shredded cheese and a dollop is sour cream and warm tortillas."

"Sce I don't useinstant rice (as this recipe does) would make on stovetop, leaving out green chiles and *most* of taco seasoning (not fond of overly spiced foods). Would add italian herbs and pinch of taco seasoning, plus sweet green peppers nd half a sweet onion or minced dried onion."

"I did not have any green chilies on hand so I left those out. This was quick to put together and delicious. My family loved it.

I would suggest testing the rice after 4 hours of cooking. I let it go for 5 and the rice was a little mushy. It was still delicious, but I think it would have been even better cooked a little less."
