IntroductionThis is so simple and you don't need to stand over it while it cooks. Everyone in the house loves it, except the 3yr old lol. The rest of my children actually beg me to make it!

we did enjoy this recipe. However, we are not spicy food people. I didn't realize how spicy ro*tel was so next time we will use just diced tomatoes. But my family did say there would be a next time(lol). Thank you for the wonderful recipe - 9/7/09

I'm sure it would be great with either plain or cilantro & onion diced tomatoes.
Sorry, too spicy :(
My husband and I loved this it was so good,we even thought the sauce would be good with chicken. Will have it again! - 8/6/09

I am soo glad. You're right about the chicken or any kind of meat for that matter. I like this recipe because it's a pretty much "use what ya got" recipe :) Oh , my calorie count is actually lower because we never use all the gravy. I'll post a chicken breast recipe kind of similar to this later
This was good, although I think it's lacking something - not sure what- but needs more flavor. I'm thinking that I may want to try this recipe again and add some chili powder or cumin or something for more flavor. Simple to fix, a quick weeknight meal for the family. - 7/30/12
