This was really good and the family enjoyed it. I made quite a few changes, though, due to taste and what I had on hand. I used steamed Jasmine rice (uncooked 1 cup) in place of instant brown rice. I used 1 can of tomatoes and green chiles and a 4 oz can of tomato sauce in place of the can of tomatoes and can of chiles. I didn't add the water because of how I made the rice. I added 1 Tbsp of green chile powder. I added a can of drained sweet corn. I used Campbells Healthy Request soup (can't have regular due to MSG). I added 2 minced cloves of roasted garlic to the meat as it cooked - and used peppercorn pork tenderloin. I used Southwestern Salsa. I also used shredded sharp cheddar. I didn't cook the mixture in the oven - just let it simmer on the stove top and added the cheese at the table (didn't want to wash another pan). I served it with tortilla chips and fresh avocado on top.
I'm going to use all the ingredients but the rice and make a dip, substituting ground beef for the pork. I'm also going to try the entire recipe with chicken.
Very yummy and "stick to your ribs" and great on a cold evening - lots of leftovers, too!
