    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Don't leave out the green olives it's what makes this dish, the more olives the better it will be LOL! I have even added in a can of drained black beans to this. Make certain to sprinkle LOTS of cheese on top! This rice dish is DELICIOUS! You will need a very large skillet for this. I use my own taco seasoning mix (#76616) to make this recipe.

      I made this last night for my family. My husband and I love green olives so I added 3/4 cups which almost made it a litle too salty so next time I'll cut down on the other salt. When it came time to add the rice, I realized I only had a 3/4 cup of white rice so I used brown rice for the remaining and it still turned out delicious. I left out the mushrooms because I didn't have them. I doubled the ground beef just because that is what I had. I also added a can of corn as mentioned in one of the other reviews. I think a can of black beans might also be a good addition. The taste reminded me of tamale pie. I served it with a green salad and cottage cheese in place of sour cream on top. Very good! Thanks for sharing!

      If you are a serious green olive fan, you'll love this recipe. We thought it was too salty, with all the olives in there. I might make it again, but with less olives and no seasoned salt.

      I was planning to freeze this for lunches so I made a few changes. I layered cooked white rice in the bottom of the container, then added the meat mixture, and topped with grated cheese. BF took this for lunch today & texted me "*****"! Thanks!
