    Made this tonight and the family loved it. I did use Uncle Ben's boil in bag brown rice instead of rice listed simply because I did not have the other in the house. Wonderful and simple to make. - 3/15/10

    This was great! I made it last night and even my husband who hates "diet food" said it was wonderful. He liked it better than my normal high cal mexican casserole. I used the low cal cream of mushroom and 2% cheese and he didn't even notice :) - 3/5/10

    This is amazing! I used Cheddar Cheese soup instead of the Cream of Mushroom, and some "Ready Rice" to cut out dirtying up more pans. It was sooo good, and very easy. Thanks for sharing! - 2/8/09

    I absolutely love this recipe! I have made it over and over again for my family. I find it's a great comfort food without feeling sinful. I will mix it up sometimes when I make it, instead of ground beef I use ground chicken/turkey other times I used different low sod cream soups (e.g. chicken etc.) - 10/2/08

  • I liked this and more importantly my finicky daughter loved it. Tasted good. I just used brown rice rather than the Fiesta Rice and it was still great. - 6/21/08

  • My husband and I both really loved this dish. I added a whole can of tomatoes (instead of just 1 cup) on accident and it still turned out great. Pretty decent nutritionals for a dinner. The portion is pretty hearty so it fills you up. Yum! - 6/10/08

  • My 13 year old son and 10 year old daughter loved it. I think I will add a small can of diced tomatoes next time.
    It was delicious! - 6/5/08

  • sounds good, but I'm skeptical whether it's good for you. Lots of sodium, calories, and carbs. Make my own taco seasoning, so that will lower the sodium. I'll try it. - 6/1/08

  • I am going to make this tonight for dinner...I am excited it looks very good..My whole house loves Mexican food..
