    It tasted really good. I will make it again, but I will use less cream cheese because I found it a tad too rich.

    Really good! I have young kids, so I doubled the recipe but didn’t double the chili powder. They did great with it 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

    I agree with other reviews to cook the rice before & it won’t take as long or be undercooked. Otherwise it was flavorful and my picky eater actually tried it

    it was fantastic. nice and spicy just how i like it. and the cream cheese smoothed the spiciness perfectly

    Following the advice of prior reviewers, I cooked my rice separately. I also used lite garden vegetable cream cheese because that was what we had on hand. Overall, an easy and adequate meal to make when all you have on hand is rice, ground beef, and pasta sauce.

    my rice didnt cook well and turned out crunchy. i added mushroom and a tad bit more cream cheese...had good flavor.

    I really wanted to love it... but it needed more seasoning and another element. Will try again in the future and make adjustments

    Turned out pretty good. I added mushrooms, celery, red peppers and a can of whole tomatoes crushed without the juice. I also cooked the rice separately. I only added half the chili powder so 1/2 tsp but it still had quite a bit of heat.

    So easy to make. I added some garlic, onion powder, and chopped green pepper to the mix. I did cook the rice separately. Topped the dish with some Mexican cheese and my family thought it was great. I will make this again for sure.

    pretty great. my entire family enjoyed it, especially with Fritos and, thanks to someone else's recommendation, black beans. we used homemade tomato sauce, chopped garlic, and lactose free cream cheese. thanks!

    Cooked everything separately because I didn’t want the rice to be undercooked. Also added a little jalapeño and some shredded cheese on top and it came out amazing! Took almost no time to cook!

    It was easy to make but the rice was still kind of hard. If I make it again I would probably cook the rice first then just add it to the meat. I would also put more cream cheese in it.

    Turned out great! Super easy to make. I chose to season my beef to give it more flavor and then I topped it with shredded cheese! Yum!
