Great easy dish. For some reason the rice didn’t get cooked all the way for me even though I followed the directions. I will make again skipping adding the rice and broth. I will add the cheese after it cooks in just the salsa. Will probably be great over cooked rice or as quesadillas or tacos. Flavor was excellent. Thanks :o)
