Can this dish be frozen?
I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the way everything came together. This was simple and just as good even after making the few substitutions I had to in order to prepare this. I was mostly shocked by my picky 6 YO's approval and will def make more in the future!
The whole family gets excited when they see this dish in the table!
Made this recipe & was very pleased with the results! Added cumin, chopped Serrano pepper, and red bell pepper. Omitted the carrot. I will be making this casserole again. It's super easy & tastes great!
Baking this dish, or heating in a microwave, brings all ingredients to the same temperature, allows flavors to meld, and yes, lets the cheese melt.
This dish can be refrigerated and cooked the next day. The recipe makes a lot, and smaller households can benefit by freezing half for the next week. One commenter split the dish into two containers and gave one to a friend with a new baby.
Really good and easy for a week night meal. I think next time I will had a little cayenne pepper to the mix.
Really easy to make and really tasty. Could use some more seasonings to add flavor but its ok the way it is. My first time ever cooking and i nailed it!
good weeknight meal, used rotisserie chicken. Split into two smaller pyrex dishes so I had one for us and one for a friend who just had a baby.
This recipe is easy and delicious. Perfect week night meal.
YUMS! Not only is this a cheap and easy dish, it is also yummmmmie! Husband raved! My coworkers fought over the leftovers at work. Oh yeah, I'll make this one again!
Sounds like everything is already cooked! What are we putting in oven for?? to melt the cheese??
Just made this for my family and it was a hit! I rarely make the same thing twice, but I'll make this again!
I changed this dish around a bit with brown rice instead of yellow and pan fried some Tilapia in olive oil and garlic instead of using the chicken. It turned out FABULOUS. I will make this one again and again.
It was my first time ever eating black beans but my girlfriend did so good, This recipe will be on our menus. we are looking what to cook tonight.
I really enjoyed this recipe! it was super easy and turned out wonderful, I added snap peas and corn to it as well (the more veggies the better!) and cooked my chicken with some black sesame oil and some spices. I also used yellow safron rice and topped with a little cumin and cayenne seasoning and crunched up tortilla chips, it was awesome and I will definitely use this recipe again!
This is a great easy recipe...I change two things. My kids love it too. 1-Use a whole rotisserie chicken for the chicken portion 2-Add a can of Rotel Tomato and Green Chilies
This is so delicious! I left out carrots, used Mild Rotel Tomatoes w/Chilis, Mahatma Yellow Rice and Cheddar cheese instead of Monterey Jack. For the chicken, I seasoned boneless breasts with salt, pepper, cumin, onion powder and chili powder and cooked on grill pan, then chopped and added 2 cups. So, so good. Will definitely make again. Loving the left-overs for lunch this week! :-)
I didn't have yellow rice - used white rice left over from chinese take-out the night before. Use a healthy dash of Lousiana hot sauce, and my husband couldn't stop eating it! In fact, he asked me to make it again tomorrow night! Pretty looking, nice colors, good flavor balance (even with white rice) and fairly easy to make. Smells good in the oven too.
This is delish! Very flavorful. Used the Zatarain's rice mix per other suggestions but to cut down on salt used the Bush's low sodium black beans, drained and rinsed well. I didn't have any cooked chicken so sauteed cumin-tossed breast with the onion, pepper, and carrots. I also didn't add the extra cheese on top. We like our food a bit spicier and mixed about 1-2T of chili powder (didn't measure, just shook it in) before baking. It was so popular that, after lunches for all, there's barely any left! I will definitely make again.
This meal was GREAT! My whole family LOVED it! Will definately make this again! I added corn to the recipe and used zatarans yellow rice. Also sour cream and salsa for toppings! 5 *!!!!!
This meal was okay but really just that. Not sure how it has a 5 star rating. It needs some serious tweaking to be deemed outstanding.
Great recipe! I poached 3 chicken breasts. I subbed cheddar for the monterrey jack and only used 1 1/2 cups. I loved all the veggies. I am looking forward to the leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
My family really enjoyed this. It can be hard to please 4 kids and a husband, but this one did it! I used Zataran's yellow rice and, like the other reviewer said, it came in an 8 oz box. I did double the recipe, and it will feed an army when you do that! It almost overflowed a 9x13 pan! For time saving purposes, I used frozen pre-cooked grilled chicken strips and cut them into cubes. (I did thaw them some first.) I also added a can of corn and did not use green pepper. The only things I did not double were the black beans and corn; it seemed to be plenty.
Where I live there are no 10 Oz. Yellow Rice mixes available so I had to expand the 8 Oz ones that are. I also added additonal Chili powder and safron. We enjoyed it and will make it again
I love this recipe and keep going back to it. I was particularly drawn to it because I love yellow rice! I use a can of mild Rotelo for the diced tomatoes and green chiles. I usually have to use 3 chicken breasts for the 2 cups because I use those easy Purdue breasts that come 5 to a package and they are sometimes smaller than other chicken breasts. The first time I made it, I accidentally bought a 5 oz. package of yellow rice instead of using 10 oz., but it came out just fine anyway - for those of you who need to cut down on the carbs.
This is delicious! Easy to make and just the right amount of spicy. The first time I made it I used the amount of cheese indicated and it was too much for me. The second time I cut the amount in half and it was much better. The only reason for three stars is that I wouldn't serve this to company. It's more comfort food.
Delicious! Great served with some hot sauce.
Delicious, quick, go to mexican style, casserole. I served with a green salad and french bread; everyone enjoyed.

I would like to know the nutritional information on this recipe
Easy, easy, easy. I use supermarket roasted chicken and it is ready in a snap, plus it is so good!
A quick but excellent meal. I loved how all the taste sensations complimented each other. Will definitely make again. The yellow rice was a bit hard to find at first, but was just wonderful.
This was a great meal. It was a little bland for us, so I would add some spicing the next time I make it! I used half the rice to lower the carbs for my diabetic spouse and it was perfect.
DEElicious! Will definately have it again! Would be great for church suppers, etc. Followed the recipe fairly closely, using what I had on hand. Did not have carrots, added some chili powder and two cans tomatoes/chillies. Used 5 cheese shreded blend.
This was fantastic!! very hearty and filling.. the only thing I did was boil some chicen tenders in mexican seasonings until tender and chopped them very chunky. Also, after cooking the bellpeppers and onions i added the rice mixture and chicken into the same skillet and put the entire skillet in the stove. This is a keeper.
This recipe is wonderful! I will make this regularly now, it was a HUGE hit! Of course, I had to alter it...I can't cook anything without changing it! LOL I substituted quinoa instead of rice, added fresh cilantro, mushrooms, celery, used two cans of petite diced tomatoes, used two cans of black beans and little chicken. This version is absolutely GLUTEN FREE and wonderful!! Family has requested I add taco seasoning next time and serve as a taco salad :)
My husband and I had this for dinner tonight - it was very savory. I loved the carrots in it. My husband wants me to make it again. Next time I might use mild Rotel - my little boy thought it was spicy.
Tasty and easy. My family loves it.
This was the perfect comfort food with just a lititle kick to it so you could enjoy every bite. I'd serve this to guests with a good salad & crusty bread. Easy to make & tastes even better the next day! Delicious!
Very good and easy! Because I just used one very large chicken breast (about 1 3/4 c chopped) I didn't use all of the rice. Just kept adding until it "looked right." Definitely a keeper and a repeat!
This was easy and very tasty.
easy to make, delicious
This was absolutely delicious! I now understand why the reviews are so consistently positive. I didn't have any cooked chicken on hand, so I simply poached a couple of boneless breasts which I then chopped up. Worked just fine. The only change I made was to add a bit of crushed red pepper to the green pepper, onion, and carrot saute. I also used a bit more cheese than was called-for (mostly on top). Husband and I both loved this dish!
My family LOVES this recipe!! It has become a new favorite at our house, and is great for making when we have a big group over. Most of the time I leave out the black beans, and it's still just as good. Sometimes I also use cheddar cheese instead of the montery jack. My husband asks me to make this at least once a week, and there are never left overs. Very flavorful, and fairly quick and easy to make.
This was just amazingly good- so tasty and yummy. I did not make any modifications and would prepare this as presented many times again!
Loved it! I made some changes, took out the green pepper (heartburn), used pork instead (what I had in the freezer), used a pepper jack and added a handful of cilantro. My husband liked it so much that I made a double batch the second time around so that he could take it for lunch. I would suggest under cooking the carrots a little bit for more texture. Definitely going to be a standard around our house.
I thought this was okay - I'd made something very similar from my own imagination that ended up being better, so I was mildly disappointed. It's only me and my daughter and we didn't want to eat it more than a couple of times so some leftovers got tossed. This wasn't a home run for us.
I made this for a family get together & unbelieveably everyone liked it. I left out the cheese because it didn't seem to go with the cuban theme. I served plantains-from the frozen section-to go with it. The leftovers were great too. Probably not fancy enough for a "special occasion" but I plan on serving it at a football party this fall. Easy to double too.This is a keeper big time!
I have made this recipe several times using a store bought rotissere chicken and I think it's excellent. There are only a few recipes that I tend to actually make more than twice, but this one is a keeper!
I used Costco's roasted chicken that I'd frozen just for a recipe like this! Wonderful!! Easy!!
This is a delicious and easy recipe. Definitely a keeper for a weeknight supper. I followed the recipe exactly. This meal got a thumbs up from my kids and my husband!
Followed the recipe as is....This makes a great meal. Super easy to make, very tasty, and my husband loved it!! Definitely going to make it again.
I have made this recipe twice and it is fantastic! My family absolutely loves it.
This is very tasty and easy to make. It's permanently on our menu.
This was a great dish. Very easy and fresh tasting. The most trouble was that I could not find shredded Montery Jack cheese so I had to do it myself. Enjoy!
Gooood!!!!! I doubled the recipe and it turned out great with no additional ingredients (a first for me). The family loved it and it will be on the menu again, at home and the next office potluck. I may try black and green olives as a garnishment the next time.
This was an easy and fun recipe to prepare and the results were yummy! Definitely a keeper and the leftovers are wonderful.
This was great! My family loved it! Very easy as long as you plan ahead and cook the chicken earlier in the day! Leftovers ususally go bad, but these were gone fast!
This casserole was easy and delicious on a cold winter's day! Tastes similar to King Ranch chicken but healthier with the addition of black beans and omission of cream soups. I simply baked some chicken breasts earlier for the meat. Perfect with a green salad and crusty bread. Everyone loved it and I'll definitely make it again.
