"Saving recipe just today, Not fans of green chiles OR chili powder ~ will probably make into casserole of some sort."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 9, 2013

"Used RoTel in place of the diced tomatoes and omitted olives (we don't like). I thought it could've used a more substantial amount of rice but overall had nice flavor!"
