A friend brought this recipe to a gathering, and it's been a hit with my family ever since! I use brown rice for more fiber and whole-grain goodness. —Jill Heatwole, Pittsville, Maryland

MY REVIEW

This was all right. Could use a flavor oomph. So add chili powder, salt, and pepper at will.

MY REVIEW

I don't often follow recipe, but this sounded too good to resist. It will be a family favorite for now on! We all loved it!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 13, 2012

This was very good! It definitely had a nice southwestern flavor. Personally, I like a bit more of a kick, so I'd probably add some chili powder to mine next time, but my husband and 12 year old son liked it as is. It was great for a cold day's lunch!
