We also have teen Hockey player eating machines...I made it on Monday and they asked me to make it again on Tuesday. It's a keeper. Didn't change a thing. Perfect as is.

I used ground chicken instead of tenderloins and doubled the garlic. Next time I'd use more cilantro. Nothing special here, just a good one to file under Quick Cooking.

Came out great however, I used ground turkey and using two cups of rice plus all the other is just to much (just the wife and I)But I did give it to our neighbor who has two teen age boy eating machines and it was a hit.

This dish is right up my husbands alley. So I did a quick menu change when I came across it and surprised him. He really liked it.

My whole family loved this dish. It's one of those dishes that is easily adaptable to what you have on hand. I didn't have mexicorn so used canned corn plus a little red bell pepper; was out of taco sauce so used picante sauce. I also used up some leftover Mexican style rice from a previous meal. All worked great. Looking forward to making it again with the provided ingredient list!

Quick, easy and delicious. I used canned chicken and ready rice (the 90sec microwave kind) and it was still amazing. Love the addition of cilantro. Will definitely make this again. Great potluck dish!

I made this for dinner tonight with a nice pan of cornbread. The men at the table asked for seconds. I will definitely make this dish again soon! I love the fact that everything in the dish is healthy; the only change I made was to use brown rice, and roasted my own peppers.

I added a bit more taco seasoning to this recipe for added pazzaz. My Son says it is a make again!

Delicious stuff! I eliminated the egg. Also leftovers can be used for taco filling.
