    !!!WOW!!!

    Alexis from Ohio

    This dish was easy and GREAT!!! My kids begged me to make it again the next night!! It was one of the best and easiest meals I have ever made, FOR SURE!!

    Good stuff.

    rebecca from Ogden, UT

    My husband and I really liked this recipe. Although we could not find the welsh cheese either. I used a small thing of Velveeta, and it was great. The only think I would change would be using the Mexican style tomatoes. It was really spicy, and hard for the kids to eat. But for adults, it's an excellent recipe.

    Quick & easy

    Whole family loved it!! I made ours with can of tomatos with chiles to add more spice. Welsh Rarebit not available any where around me, so i had to substitute. I used a pasteurized prepared cheese product, because i knew it would melt well.

    Great Dish

    Donald from Phoenix, Arizona

    We have served this dish at a few of our dinner parties and each time that we have served it, it has been a success. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

    Not as good as I thought.

    Tina from Arcadia, Ca

    After reading all the reviews about how great this dish was, I was definetely let down, as was my family. It was at the most so-so. We all thought it tasted like the filling for stuffed bell peppers. Only my husband had seconds and that was because he was really hungry and covered it in hot sauce.

    Simple Quick dinner

    Lori from Medford, OR

    After reading other reviews on this dish and I didn't have the frozen welsh rarebit I just made my own rarebit and it was still a quick dinner to prepare. All I had to add was a green salad and the family loved it. I got thumbs up all around the table. Kudos to meals.com for the hard work bringing me new great ideas for meals.

    AMAZING!!

    anonymous from

    this dish is delicious!! i made it once and loved it and now make it all the time.. another idea i came up with while making it is just using everything but the beef, rice, broth and onion, makes a great salsa dip:)

  •  Star(s)

    very good!

    Melinda Lee from Maine

    Made this without onion and cheader cheese soup instead of the welsh rarebit. It was delicious. Highly recommend.

    Wow!

    Brooke from

    This meal was absolutely fantastic. I enjoyed every bite! I substituted beef for chicken and had cornbread on the side. My family loved it and I'm glad I chose it. Thanks a bunch!

    very good

    Katryna from

    It took longer to shop for this recipe than to cook it. We couldn't find Welsh Rarebit so we use Velveeta. My husband prepared and cooked it in no time. It was delicious for the whole family, (even our picky 7 year old)

  •  Star(s)

    very good

    phillip from north carolina

    this was very good but next time I will use a little less rice and a little more hamburger but it turned out great my wife loved it.

  •  Star(s)

    A great easy meal

    Melissa from

    When I tried this last night for dinner I omitted the chiles. I couldn't find the cheese sauce that the recipe called for and ,thanks to a previous poster, I used cheese soup instead. I also served the rice on tortillas with black beans and sour cream. Even my picky daughter loved it. Thanks for all the great recipies!

  •  Star(s)

    Surprised

    M from New York

    I wasn't sure if I would like this recipe especially when I was cooking it because I just didn't think it looked good but surprisingly it was great. My husband liked it very much and had seconds. I used turkey instead of beef and the rice I used was leftover from the Chinese Restraunt.

  •  Star(s)

    Yummy!

    Kim from Frisco, TX

    Made this last night for my family. They LOVED it, and hubby took leftovers to work for lunch today. I didn't have the Welsh Rarebit, so I substitued a can of Cheddar Cheese soup and about a cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese. I'll be making this again.

  •  Star(s)

    Awesome!

    Barb Nutter from Harlan, Iowa

    My family loved this dish. Although we made a few changes. I couldn't find the Stouffers Welsh Rarebit, so we used 10oz. of Mexican Cheese and the idea of ketchup didn't appeal to me either so I used 1/2 cup of taco sauce instead. We took another reviewers idea and served it w/sour cream and flour tortillas. I'm looking forward to the leftovers today!!! By the way THIS is my favorite website. You always help me out of a "what's for dinner?" jam! Thanks meals.com

    Great Recipe!

    Candice from

    This recipe was so simple to make and delicious. I don't have much time for cooking when I get home from work and this is the perfect solution. Definitely a hit in our house. I served it with some biscuts and think that bread is a great side to have with it!

  •  Star(s)

    Very Good

    Darin and Rebecca from Fort Hood, Texas

    WE will be making this one again. Even our kids who are picky eaters will eat this dish. It is simple to make and inexpensive. WE Recommend YOU try it...

    Pretty good but needs some help

    Betsy from NJ

    I made this recipe over the weekend and it is super easy to make but I didn't have the diced tomatoes with chilies, so I used regular diced tomatoes. It was very bland, so next time I'll use the one with the chilies. You dont have to use the rarebit by stouffers, just use regular cheddar or the pepper jack soup, thats what I will try next time. Other than that, it was very good to eat with tortillas.

  •  Star(s)

    Amazing!

    Carrie from Wisconsin

    I can't believe how good this was. I could not find the rarbit so I used velveta instead. My boyfriend went crazy over it and begged me to make it again later this week!!

  •  Star(s)

    Great and Easy!

    Tammy from Texas

    I loved this! I had to make one change. I could not find Welsh Rarebit so I cubed about 8oz. of process cheese. It was awesome! I also did not drain the green chilies and added a little cumin. It was a big hit with my son!

  •  Star(s)

    Wonderful!

    Jessica from

    I have tried a lot of different recipes on my husband, but never got much response, but this recipe got 2 thumbs up! He went back for 2nds and even 3rds and asked me to make it again only a few days later! I would have to say this one is a definite winner! I changed up the recipe and left out the ketchup. I also used regular shredded colby jack cheese instead of the rarebit and added a little chili powder for flavor. We ate ours on tortillas, they were wonderful!!!

  •  Star(s)

    Bland?

    A.J. from Iowa

    It was okay. I thought is was a little bland and my kids thought it was too spicy. Might be better as a side dish?

  •  Star(s)

    I'm suprised

    morgan from

    I'm surprised that you have to use both margarine and butter. I think it could of said if you could substitute something for another. I think it was good and a very exeptional idea.

  •  Star(s)

    VERY GOOD!!!

    Nancy from Bloomington, Il

    I saw this recipe yesterday, an, tonight got the ingredients to make it. This was very simple to make, had a great Tex/Mex flavor. Instead of the rarebit, I used a can of the "new" Campbell's Southwest Style Pepper Jack cheese soup. DELICIOUS. Have plenty left to put in containers for work. Will make it for family or an office potluck.

    Great dish!

    Elizabeth Irvine from

    I made this on a whim because I needed a meal with beef. I didn't feel like buying the rarebit, so I looked up the recipe online and made that myself. My family is not a very spicy family, so I added a small amount of worchestershire sause and I put in some chili power instead of the peppers, plus we didn't have any. But it was an excellent dish, I would recommend it to anyone. We couldn't get enough for my family, even though we were getting full, everyone kept taking "just one more spoonful".

    Another Winner

    Elaine Welch from

    This was yet another wonderful "meals" recipe. I made this for my husband and myself and was very happy with the results. It was even better topped with sour cream. A few vegetables on the side with a salad and you are set.
