I love quinoa, so that's what I'll use, also. But gotta have the goat cheese!

I also thought this was way too sweet, and could not drain the cranberries, so just stirred the whole thing in. I thought next time I would add dried cranberries and pecans, and I like the idea of the mascarpone instead of the whipped topping.

I don't have a food proc., and it doesn't sound like a blender would work. Would breaking it up after steaming work to break it finely enough?

I think the basic recipe sounds really good, but without the glaze! I want to try it with reducing down the liquid, maybe flavoring it with cumin or whatever. Mexican-izing this sounds better than the Carribean flavors.

I don't know when they started allowing ratings and comments from people who obviously hadn't tried the recipe, but Food Network, please go back to that! This recipe sounds amazing!

This was so good! I made it for brunch, with red bell peppers. I used Trader Joe's Harvest Grain Blend in place of the rice, and added extra couscous. I cooked them in 1 c. chicken broth, 1 c. white wine, and did not cook the bell peppers until adding them to the pan. I did let everything simmer a bit longer, and I also topped them with shredded ...

I wanted a really decadent mac and cheese for Valentine's Celebration, and this was it! Now, to be fair, I used different cheeses, I used an organic white cheddar "Rumlano", and Sun Dried Tomatoes and Basil Montchevre Goat Cheese.

This was a hit, but I took note of the previous comments. I used twice as much chips, 5 whole eggs, did not measure the cheese or the cilantro, and used canned chilies with tomatoes rather than plain chilies, with a fresh chili added for good measure. I also made fresh guacamole to top it. I did also add a can of chicken, since I was cooking for ...
