Makeover Shrimp Rice Casserole
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 30 min.
My whole family absolutely loved this recipe!! I did do few changes to the recipe that were suggestedj the comments. Instead of doing green bell pepper I did jalapenos. I added minced garlic and minced onion when I cooked my shrimp. Last of all I literally just sprinkled the cayenne pepper on and probably trippled the amount in the recipe. Sooo good, great on calories and filling!!
Really not impressed.
I was really low on milk so I did annoying thing that totally made a new recipe, but it was SO good I wanted to share: 1. Follow step 1. 2. Add about 2-3 T tomato paste, stir and cook 1-2 minutes. Then add flour, salt and cook. 3. Deglaze with half a cup of chicken broth. Add about 12 oz diced tomatoes and juices, stir and taste, and add more chicken broth if you'd like. 4. Add some some hot sauce and keep going with the recipe. It was a huge hit. I thought toasted breadcrumbs or croutons on top might have been nice for some crunch, too. Win!
Blind! I am against Rice and Roni but it has more flavor then this homede version it.
Very tasty! I used some garlic in this dish, too.
Very good. Very flavorful. Would be great for company. We like our food on the spicy side and would add more cayene pepper next time.
I used jalapenos (seeded) instead of green bell peppers because that was what I had on hand. I also bumped up the cayenne to 1/4 tsp. Spicy but not enough to lose the taste of the shrimp. love it!
Could you use chicken instead of shrimp?
I added some snow peas as well as some Old Bay to this recipe and it was a winner! The family approved it for a future meal.
<p>We just love this recipe! It makes such a nice change of pace on a week night and we can use frozen uncooked shrimp stored in the freezer. Add a little more cayenne for an extra kick.</p>
