This is one of my favorite recipes. I have made it a handful of times now and is always a winner. I always use fresh tomatoes instead and is just as good.

I switched out ground turkey for the ground beef & used Rotel instead of canned tomatoes. Very yummy! Great leftovers too! I will definitely be making this again!

I substitute "Boca" or "Morning Star" crumbles instead of lean ground beef, and we cannot tell the difference. Also, easy to switch out the rice for brown rice and the American Cheese for lowfat Mozzarela (for taste mostly)

Very easy to prepare. I did add a can of tomato sauce to the recipe for extra flavor and served it with mashed potatoes. For WW people, the entire meal was 10 pts total for dinner. My family loved it! Will definitely cook this again
