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)
