I don't think this recipe is written correctly because there isn't enough liquid to cook the rice. The idea is good though. I used part cheddar and part swiss cheese because I don't like the processed stuff. Good taste but too dry even after I added more liquid. I'll try this one again some time with some modifications.

I used precooked rice with this recipe - it was fantastic! I agree that there probably isn't enough water to fully cook dry rice, however, this dish turned out great!

This was really good, my Husband doesn't really care for rice and he loved it. I did substitute long grain rice for the minute rice because that was all I had at home.

This was a super quick and delicious side dish. I used shredded sharp cheddar in place of the pasteurized cheese product. In addition, I happened to have some homemade chicken stock that really added a ton of flavor to the rice. Everyone at my dinner table had seconds. I will definitely make this again!

This went over okay at my dinner table. Due to suggestions from the children (5 of them) I will use "real" cheese next time. Regular rice will suit us better too I think even though it will take longer to cook. We will try again!

This was good. I added corn, peas, and leftover chicken to make it our meal rather than a side dish. I also used brown rice rather than white.

With or without cheese, this is a good side dish. It's a great way to get in some extra vegetables.
