This recipe was good but something was missing. I added just a little salt & that made it much better. As with most casseroles, it's even better the next day.

I did everything that this recipe told me to do and, well, let's just say that we had to go out for dinner because of the results.

This was easy and delicious! The leftovers are great in tortillas as burritos.

My fiance and I both loved this. I used 1 lb of ground beef, canned tomatoes with jalapeno; also used 1 1/2 tbl of chili powder, 2 1/2 tsp of cumin, 1/4 tsp of garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon of dried cilantro. Everthing else i kept the same. I highly recomend this recipe; tastes great and is some what healthy.

I used leftover chili in this recipe and just added the rice, sour cream, and cheese. It was really easy and quick that way. Very good.

So uniquely flavorful and beautiful colors. My husband loved it! I used cinnamon instead of cumin.

This dish wanted to be spicy but didn't quite make it. It was good, but the rice added a bland flavor to it. I'm going to make it again using Mexican rice and see how that works. I think it just needs a little extra kick!
