Loved this recipe, as did my 5 yr old and 2 yr old. Couldn't find the pepper jack Velveeta, so used their queso blanco variety. So good. Tasted bad for you. I did NOT find the recipe bland at all.
Chicken and Rice

AMAZING!! Instead of Velveeta, I mixed in 1 cup of real shredded pepper jack along with the chicken and rice. Additionally, I only used 1/2 cup of rice since I was just making this for my boyfriend and I (but kept all other ingredients the same). Next time I think I will go with 1/2 or 3/4 cup of cheese. Turned out great though! Also, this hopefully goes without saying, but the recipe calls for 1 and a half cups of chopped onion not 11 and a half!

Followed the recipe except had to use white rice rather than brown rice due to cook time. I found the recipe to be very medicore and bland. My 8 year odl daughter liked the creamy Velveeta and jack cheese flavor, but overall the dish called for more veggies and less rice. Could be improved by playing with the recipe a bit.

I can see how kids would like this. It is VERY cheesy- I can't believe I'm saying this but almost TOO cheesy. Next time I think I will skip the processed cheese and use real cheese, maybe that will help with the richness? I forgot to add the cumin and it was still flavorful.
