I think this recipe has great potential to please my picky taste buds!! I kept the rice separated and used it as the "base" under the tomato mixture as that allowed for longer cooking time and better flavor integration of the tomatoes with everything else.. (I read a review that said the tomato flavor was too overpowering for their liking).. Love that this is a recipe that accepts adjustments so well!! Thank You!!

We found that this dish lacked alot of flavor. The canned tomatoes really overpowered anything else in the dish. Sadly, we will not be making this again.

Good recipe! PLEASE REMOVE THE COMMENT FROM 'PAMILLA'. The language is offensive and the comment is probably from a child - hard to believe an adult couldn't spell any better than that and an adult wouldn't carry on like that.

Pamilla's comment is so far off base that I have to comment. Hungarian goulash, Italian sausage, Chinese fried rice, Greek salad ... all dishes that probably have only a passing resemblance to the original but were created in the style of another nation's cuisine. I doubt you've made comments about those recipes. As for cultural appropriation - if you're going to slam someone at least learn to use the correct word. BTW, Pamilla/Pamela is a Greek word. Are you Greek or have you appropriated someone else's name? Finally, if you check, Lorraine is from Canada, not the US. It's highly unlikely she voted for Trump or anyone else in the US. Check your facts before going off on a very rude and unnecessary rant. Great recipe, btw. Thanks, Lorraine.

This was a terrific recipe. I have one similar with ground meat, but did not even miss it. I did use home frozen chopped tomatoes - 2 16 oz bags that I did drain quite a bit so it was not watery. I added some chopped garlic and 1 t. cumin. I kept everything else the same. I served it with bowls of green onion, shredded cheese, sour cream, olives,

I loved this recipe I toned down the spices because of my little ones and added ground beef for the older one who thinks there has to be meat at every meal.We ate it in tortillas.I made Mexican cornbread to serve with .I will definitely make again
