  • “THis may not be a true “Spanish” rice, but who cares, it tastes great.We will definitely keep this recipe and sometime will probably add ground beef or chicken and turn it into a main dish casserole.Thanks for posting, it’s a nice change of pace.”

  • “This is another “Spanish” recipe that you would be hard put to find in Spain. For one thing they don’t use Cheddar cheese or Monterey Jack cheese in any Spanish dish, I doubt that you could even find Monterey Jack in Spain. They don’t use sour cream either, in thirty years I have never been able to find it and always substitute yoghurt (in my non Spanish recipes of course)!”

  • “The recipe only calls for a 1 1/2 qt dish but I felt that it needed my 9×13 casserole since it was too large for the 1 1/2.After the dish (according to the recipe above) was done baking, I layered my chili colorado on top with a little added cheese then baked enough to melt the cheese.I didn’t think it had the flavor I was looking for (which is why I added the chili on top) This was for the Super Bowl party.”

  • “Loved this dish.Used equal parts Cheddar and Pepper Jack cheeses.Next time will add in shredded beef, chicken or turkey to make this a main dish.Great Family Food!”

  • “It’s definitely quite different from Spanish rice, but it’s very tasty.We really enjoyed it and I will probably make it again. Thanks the recipe.”

  • “Easy to follow directions, and very Yummy!!!”
