We did not really care for it, too much cheesy milk taste. I think we prefer it more tomatoey

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.

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.

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.
