    Absolutely delicious! I've shared it with friends and family. I also made extra brown rice and used the Glad snack-size bags (fits one cup servings) for storage (freezer and frig), That has made it be easy to grab bags for heating leftovers. I will make for my parents soon. Thanks! - 7/17/09

    For 317 calories, this is a keeper! Certainly filling - healthy comfort food! I served over 1/2 c brown rice and let the family add shredded cheese and sour cream as Laurynmadsen did. I did use a can of diced tomatoes instead of sauce & added my own SW seasoning (vs Ms Dash). So good! - 9/28/08

    This has become a real husband pleaser in my household. I substitute crushed tomatoes for the sauce, and some chili powder and cumin instead of the Mrs. Dash's seasoning. I serve it on brown rice with low-fat sour cream and shredded 2% cheddar. Yum!! Thank you for this great recipe - 11/5/09

  • Very, very good. Easy to prepare. It seemed a bit bland (hubby was putting salt all over it - horrors!), but some extra seasoning perked it right up. - 7/12/12

  • Absolutely amazing!!! I think I might make it again this weekend it was just that yummy!! I used brown rice with it instead of instant rice but i'm sure either way it is just as good. Thanks for sharing! - 7/6/12

  • This was better than I expected! Like others, I used plain tomato sauce and then did my own spices: basil, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, and black pepper. I served it over brown rice, which makes it go further - we got about 8 servings out of this. - 6/25/12

  • This is a great recipe. I always saute real garlic, green pepper and some mushrooms just to include some fresh vegetable. Then I season with Goya-Adobo. Its really a good recipe that you can build on in many ways! - 11/9/11

  • That was yummy and filling and I will definitely make it again. I feel it has some room to grow on the exact spice combination, but not a bad start at all! - 10/25/11
