    Great recipe. I layered the rice under the meat mix. Basmati rice is the perfect rice for this!

    Needs a little spice or something. Just a little bland. Also we felt it required chips with it for a different texture. Overall, not bad just needs a tweek or two. Will try it again.

    very good, but could use a crunchy aspect, maybe have with tortilla chips

    My whole family loved this! It was super easy, and we made it last for 2 nights. I cooked the chicken in the crockpot during the day, and shredded it once I got home that evening. It turned out perfect!

    This dish was a grand-slam home run for our family! The recommended proportions were spot on for my family of three teenaged sons (and my wife loved it too) with enough for a second day at lunch. My wife added a dollop of sour cream to hers (that was more a textural preference). I think that cilantro is important to the overall flavor so would recommend not leaving it out. This was a great dish.

    Great recipe! Easy to put together. I leave out the beans and use La Victoria enchilada sauce. Easy recipe to tweak and personalize

    I had way too much rice. Next time, I'll use about half as much. Other than that, it was great and my family loved it.
