Oh my. So, I wanted to make extra soup, and decided to make 1.5 recipes instead of 1. Good thing I didn't double it. Opened the crock pot to it literally full of rice mush. Not grains of ric...

Flavor is good, but the cook time makes the rice turn to mush. I would try cooking it again, but put in the rice towards the end.

I added 1 bay leaf and carrots, and it turned out delicious. I would add 1 extra cup water next time though as it was quite thick. 4 hours on high was enough time.

Made this for a family get together & everyone loved it, even the kids. I didn't have time to slow cook, so I simmered on the stove. I took the advice of previous reviews & waited to throw in ...

I made this yesterday,it was snowing in Virginia Beach and this sounded just right for the weather. I followed the receipt for the basics but then added some chopped up bacon, carrots sliced thi...

This was bland, but a good base recipe. Tastier the next day. My rice turned to mush but I did slow cook it for ages.

I wish I had read all the reviews first. Instead, I followed the recipe and ended up with a pot of mushy rice that was inedible. I had to throw it out. :(

Ok base recipe but pretty bland by itself. I added a cumin, garlic powder, and fajita seasonings and sausage and went ahead and had a cajun soup. plus added red bell peppers for color contrast.

It's a little too thick. Next time I will add more chicken broth to make it more of a soup and less of a casserole
