"Love this recipe !! I use yellow, green, and mexican squash in this. Love it with a wild rice mix also, if you want more spice use hot chilis & papper jack cheese. The left overs re-heat wonderful."

"Made this last night for supper and hubby really loved it. I liked the texture better before I put it in the oven to bake- the sour cream was all sucked up by the rice by the time it came out and the creamy texture wasn't there. However, I have to say we both liked it and hubby has already said, "I hope you'll make this again cause I really liked it.""

"I made this recipe with yellow squash rather than zucchini.  I also omitted the chilis and used a slightly spicy Jambalaya Rice Mix for the rice.  I used plain cheddar cheese as well.  I also used ground turkey.  This dish seems very versitile as I substituted a lot of the ingrdients to fit my pantry."

"I found this recipe to be easy to prepare, but a little bland. If I make it again, I'll probably substitute tomatoes and/or tomato sauce for the sour cream."

"I just made this meal and I will make it again - very easy and quick. I changed it up just a bit though...I used ground chicken instead of beef and omitted the chili powder and chopped chilies as my house doesn't like a lot of spice. Still very tasty without the "zippy" factor."
