  • I absolutely love this - was surprised how much flavor it had after adding the cheese. Cooking it in the slow cooker allows the flavors to meld together perfectly. - 4/23/07

  • This was pretty delicious. I made it on the stove top at home after work since I didn't have time to prep it in the slow cooker before - just cooked the rice separately, let it all boil then simmer for about 20 minutes, added the cheese and stirred for about five minutes. Needed more cheese though. - 4/12/07
