This is delicious and makes a ton! I added some green peppers and onions also just to try to sneak in more veggies. It really was delicious. The second time that I made it, I put some taco seasoned beef in before I baked it. It was a tad greasy but still amazing. It is a recipe that can be easily altered and added to to make it stretch. And the leftovers were just as good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
DELICIOUS! Definitely will make this repeatedly. My family loved it. We've made (having browned it first. It is not hard to make and not pricey, two things that will make it on my list of regular recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved this dish! My boyfriend loves it too! Very easy dish, serves a lot of people. I don't really like hot/spicy dishes, but I think next time I will add another jalapeno, it needed a little more of a kick! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed the recipe exactly as stated and it turned out wonderful. It was super easy to make, with simple ingredients. I served it with Tyler Florence's spicy grilled beef tenderloin. I will definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy to make, I also added cilantro, lime juice and 2 additional serranos, 2 fresnos peppers in lieu of the roasted red peppers. Then i sauted some chicken in a skillet with more canyne pepper , butter and lime juice, then added it to the rice dish for protein! makes enough for 6 Perfect! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Needed something spur of the moment & this fit the bill. I did make a few changes because I didn't have time to go to the store. I used 2-11 oz cans mexicorn, didn't have scallions so used some black pepper garlic seasoning, also used 2 cups shredded mozzarella in mixture as well as 2 cups shredded cheddar. It was YUMMY! Tasted okay at room temp also, but much better warm. Would make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tripled the recipie for my BIG family party.I substituted three large freshly roasted and peeled poblano peppers for the canned red peppers, didn't add jalapeno or cayenne (too many little kids) but the poblanos gave it a little heat. Other than that went by the recipie. There was not a grain of rice left after dinner. It was delicious and everyone wanted the recipie! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made it and my family likes it and even went up for seconds, but I'm not a huge fan of the corn and thought it needed more cheese and crunch. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was awesome if you want to change from plain rice. I roasted my own peppers instead of buying them jared. It was very easy and delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I prepared this dish the day before hosting a large party, put it in a casserole dish and refrigerated it overnight. A half hour before everyone arrived, I popped it into the oven and it turned out perfectly. Really fast to make--the roasted red peppers and the cheese topping totally make this dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
