3 (10.75 ounce) cans
condensed tomato soup
processed cheese food (such as Velveeta®)
This does have a pretty nice taste to it. I made it for my husband and myself one Sunday night when we wanted something quick and tasty. We used ground turkey instead of beef and liked the way that turned out- however, I love cheese and I think next time I might ad twice as much. Just wasn't quite enough for me. Also, didn't fit in a 1 Qt casserole- I had to use my 2 Qt.
This dish tastes awesome, but you do have to make some changes. First of all, I cooked the rice in the rice cooker first and I decreased the amount of ground beef, and the cans of tomato soup. Lastly, I used regular cheddar instead of velveeta.
This recipe is just not right. Where do I start--First of all, it calls for a 1 qt baking dish. This is impossible considering it calls for 3 cans of soup which is almost a quart in itself. I made the recipe tonight and didn't find it anything special. There is way too much chili powder. Rice cannot be properly cooked using 1 cup water to 1 cup rice. There should be 2 cups of water. I feel I wasted food tonight.
We really enjoyed this with the personal adjustments. It's a great idea, which is why I gave it a shot. I have a rice cooker, so I cooked 2 c of rice. While the rice was cooking I sauted red onion (half salted)and garlic (3 cloves), then the lb of beef. I seasoned the beef with cajun & montreal steak seasoning. Instead of tom.soup I used 6oz Ragu and 5T of restaurant stlye salsa and eye-balled the chili powder. In place of the Velveta I used real colby/jack, american, and provolone. Then, yes and then I topped it off with French's french fried onions.
Had to adjust some of the measurements. Used Sharp chedder cheese and added garlic powder. It was easy and my whole family LOVED it. Had leftovers last night and my husband calls from work today and says"I don't care what you girls eat for dinner tonight, but the rest og the beef and rice is mine." :-)
yum! i thought this came out really tasty! my boyfriend was afraid of it, but he ended up liking it too. i used ground turkey instead of beef. and also added some fried onions on top before i put it in the oven. i like the simple ingredients cause i had all of them on hand. :D
This was terrible! My family and I were trying out new recipes this month, and I saw that this had good ratings. So it sounded good... Its not! I my have put too much cheese on it or something, i dont know. It just was really creamy and cheesy to the point that you couldnt taste anything else. Velveeta is not my idea of a good snack to only taste the velveeta! Unless you want a VERY high calorie meal with nothing but cheese...
I adapted this a little differently by substituting a cup of salsa for one can of tomato sauce, and adding peppers and onions to the hamburger while cooking. Topped with taco cheese blend and crushed tortilla chips. My very picky 5 year old loved it, so it was a success!
