    Picture perfect! This was an amazing recipe! Placing the cheese on at the end over the surface gives a golden brown exterior that makes me hungry to dig in!

    It turned out great! I cooked my own brown rice & black beans & red bell pepper instead of green. Will definitely make again but will probably add some salsa to spice it up.

    This was super yummy. I switched the vegetable stock for a cup of mild red enchilada sauce to give it some zest. I think next time I’m going to add some fried polenta cubes to give it a tamale pie feel. Husband is a tough sell on vegetarian dishes, but he really liked this

    This was great. I made a few minor changes just because. Added a tsp Ground Jalapeño, a fresh tomato, and once done an avocado and sour cream. Keeping this for real!! Also fresh corn was great!

    This was a quick and easy dinner recipe. Flavor was okay but it definitely could have used more vegetables and seasonings. If I make again I’d also add more beans as the dish was mainly rice. Topped with homemade salsa and sour cream.

    I modified this recipe to make it plant based, which means I used nondairy cheese. It was okay, more tweaking needs to be done to improve it.
    Very good vegetarian main dish option. I made corn bread with it! Very solid recipe.

    Used brown rice and quinoa instead for more protein and I can roasted tomatoes along with the other ingredients. Soooo good.

    Didn’t read the instructions until I started it - “serve with your favourite toppings!” Didn’t have any in, but can see how it’d best be served with a topping of some sort as it’s a little dry. Very tasty though - worth a go!

    Easy, heathy, and delicious! Also, very re-eatable! I can eat this for lunch several times over the week without getting too tired of it.

    Very yummy even just using plain Monterey Jack cheese (no peppers). Will make this again for sure! Served with warmed nann bread - mmmmm

    My husband's verdict was "really good." I added ground turkey this time (made it as written last time) and added about half a jar of mild salsa instead of the vegetable broth. An easily customizable recipe for sure. I felt it needed more flavour than it had as written, though.

    My 11 year old and I loved it but my fussy 18 year old said it was alright. We put some of the mix in tortilla's and toasted them. Will definitely make again.
