This veggie-packed casserole hits the spot on chilly nights. But it's equally good any time I have a taste for Mexican food with all the fixings, too. —Patricia Gale, Monticello, Illinois

"This was good. I also added some taco seasoning. Next time I will spice it up a little more with a medium salsa or chilies. Leftovers were better! Thanks for sharing!"

"This was wonderful!! My husband was skeptical because there is no meat, but he said, "Please make it again!" I did add taco seasoning after reading the reviews. We liked it the first night and the leftovers heated well. I think it would be good in a wrap or eaten with tortilla chips."

"Pros: easy to make, family favorite, not terribly unhealthy.

Cons: Takes an hour to make and NEVER any leftovers.
I usually double the recipe because my family of three cannot get enough of this casserole! :)"

"Great dish. After reading the comments, I added a few teaspoons of low sodium taco seasoning, and used 1 can of low sodium pinto beans and a can of low sodium cannellini beans. I used the diced tomatoes with celery, garlic and onions and added some minced garlic. This recipe is a keeper!"

"This dish had great flavor. Unfortunately I undercooked the rice a little. I will make again of course with the rice cooked properly"
