Best tex-mex casserole. Loved the Mexican rice. We baked it for 55 minutes - would add another 1/4 c. liquid.

The rice did not get done. I used store brand salsa not Pace but that shouldn't have mattered. There was something wrong with the rice to water ratio.

This casserole was AMAZING! I made a couple small alterations. One, I filled the soup can with water and used that instead of 1/2 cup and it worked great! I also mixed some cheese in with the rice, corn, soup, salsa mix because my boyfriend LOVES cheese and it made it really great. I suggest topping it with sour cream when you eat it! I will Definitely be making this again!

I added a can of diced green chilies, black beans and black olives. I also added some cheese to the mix. It was awesome!

This recipe is EXCELLENT! (with my mods of course!) To give it more flavor and color here is what I did: I used 6 breasts since I was cooking for 5 people. I cut them into strips, and then halves, and cooked them in a skillet with chicken taco seasoning. For my rice mixture I used mild rotel instead of salsa, a soup can of water, almost a whole can of corn, 1 cup of rice, and one can of black beans. Topped it with my chicken peices and then covered the entire thing with a thin layer of chedder cheese. Baked for 45 minutes, and for the last 5-10 minutes I scattered sliced black olives on top. Served with a dallop of sour cream on the side and it was AMAZING! I had 0 leftovers and eveyone raved about it. We will be making this again for years to come. Next time I might mix the cheese with sour cream and some chopped jalapenos to spread on the top for extra flavor. SO GOOD!!!

My family loved this. Even my picky 5yr old!! It was sooo easy and quick to make also. Mix everything together in the same pan you cook it in. Less mess to clean up!! Followed the recipe exactly as written. Chicken came out nice and moist. Rice was perfect. Loved everything about this recipe. :) Not sure how people can rate this WHEN THEY CHANGE THE RECIPE!! It is good AS IS!! My kids are VERY picky and this is one recipe that they LOVE!! thanks for such a great recipe

My family (husband and kids 2, 4, and 12) really like this with my changes: Cooked cubed chicken breast in a pkg of taco seasoning (in pan with oil). Then added it to the pan with other ingredients (after adding the can of water to the pan to get all the seasoning from the pan).Used 1 can of water instead of 1/2 c. Also, added 2 cloves of raw garlic, & almost 2 c. of rice. Due to extra rice I added 1 can condensed ckn broth and 1 can water. Only added 1/2 c. of salsa due to taco seasoning and fear it would be too spicy for the kids. It was still a little spicy with taco seasoning (and I'm not afraid of spice, but my kids are picky about it) Waited till end to add cheese. I actually thought it was better BEFORE I added the cheese. In the future I will just top it with cheese when served. sorry, not sure if its fair to rate this with the change of using taco seasoning, but just wanted to give changes/info to others.
