"This is a rice recipe with a different little kick. You can either make it as hot or as mild as you like it, depending on your taste for spiciness. This serves as a great side dish or for a 'quick fix' meal." — CHAUNIH

2 2/3 cups
1 1/3 cups
uncooked long grain white rice
ground pork breakfast sausage
1 (16 ounce) jar
1 (8 ounce) container
Cheddar cheese, shredded
Great recipe! I used ground beef because thats what I had on hand. Easy to put together, makes a bunch, economical and seriously tasty!
We did not really care for it, too much cheesy milk taste. I think we prefer it more tomatoey
This was a hit at the last mexican fiesta I had! Add this to your menu. Delicious.
this dish was quick, easy & good. i added taco seasoning mix (1pk.) to the ground beef (i did not have breakfast sausage)i also served this w\a side of refryed beans everyone loved it. thanks
Great...makes enough to feed a small army!
Made it exactly like as instructed. I would use a hotter picante sauce next time or spicier sausage. To me it was just a good rice casserole. I am going to add just a little more rice next time. Recipe was slighty watery. It is good, easy, and fast so I will make it again.
This is a fantastic dish! Very easy and quick to fix and the bonus is, it's delicious! I prepared it exactly as instructed, but cut the recipe in half. I let it sit a good 15 minutes after taking it out of the oven so it would "set up" a little. Then we ate it on warm flour tortillas. My kids said it was better than anything they could get at Taco Bell!! I'm taking that as a compliment. This will be a regular at my house.
I made minor changes to this. My six-year-old and I don't really handle spicy too well, so I put in about 3/4 cup medium chunky salsa and about 1/2 cup sour cream. I also use sage sausage because that's the only sausage I actually like. I use Daiya cheddar shreds on top. We now make this 3-4 times a month because we love it so much. Occasionally we'll use the leftovers in burritos the next day but usually we just eat it with spoons.
