    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
