  • Nutritional facts do not include cheese topping
  • While this dish will last well for several hours on the warm setting of your slow cooker, please keep in mind that rice will start to break down and become a little mushier over time.  (We like it this way!)  However, if your diners will be eating at different times, and they aren't fans of softer rice, you can add rice into each individual bowl just before serving.
