    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.

    This recipe is good but has a lot of room for improvement. We added a dressing on the side and topped it with more cheese. I would also suggest adding some of your favorite spices as it tastes a bit bland without. Due to most of the vegetables being canned, the recipe is fairly easy.

    perfect. I added salary and mushrooms to it and did the cheese on top

    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.

    I added celery and sun dried tomatoes and chicken stock in lieu of vegetable stock. Also used white rice very tasty

    wow so good! a new family favorite! This is also really easy to make!

    I did not have vegetable stock so I added chicken stock instead. This would taste great in a burrito as well. That is what it tasted like to me. My son who hates vegetables loved this and asked for seconds.
