    Can't believe this has not been rated yet. Tried it with lemon juice, was good, but will also try with lime juice to compare. Why this hasn't hit Editors Choice, I can't imagine. This is DIABETIC FRIENDLY. - 4/15/07

    Okay so this is amazing!!! I didn't use cheese though I used black beans and added them to the pan when everything was simmering. Wow it is moist and soooo tasty!! Try it! - 4/20/09

    Easy to make and my whole family loved the dish. It is also good the next day. I would recommend not adding the cheese until you are ready to serve so that the cheese doesn't melt too much. I have already made this dish twice, that's how much we liked it. Thanks! - 7/2/09

    This was very good! The sauce is really great over Southwestern Beans and Rice too, and it makes GREAT leftovers! I will definitely make this again. My hubby liked it too. - 6/17/09
