"This recipe is absolutely amazing!!! I did make some of the adjustments that Lorriecox suggested...I sautéed onions, green peppers, garlic, butter, and a few other seasonings and added that to the rice mixture, which I added Rotel tomatoes to instead of regular tomatoes. Also, I used pork medallions and boneless chops, and topped with a mixture of cheeses. My boyfriend and his sons all said it was amazing and can't wait for me to make it again!! "

So tasty!! Did not have taco seasoning so I added the spices I prefer- garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, red chile powder, salt and pepper. Came out great!

I modified the recipe, added green peppers, onions and corn, and cooked the pork chops on top of the stove in the tomato mixture, then served over pasta. It is too hot for the oven this week! It came out good.

My whole family loved it. Even my (Mexican born) husband and my picky eaters. :) instead of tomatoes I added a can of rotel and I used flavored rice instead of plain and I didn't cool it as long,(only about 45 minutes).

I sauted some onions and added it to the to with the peppers. It was do good, but I think it could have cooked a little less. Will make again but will take out 10-15 mins earlier if the rice is cooked. Kids loved it too.
