  1. Would be nice if it said how many servings the calorie count is based on…makes 4 cups…what does that mean.? Lets have some consistency in information.


    • While I agree they should have been more clear on the survey size, based on some calculations I think it’s 4 servings. The three main caloric ingredients, butter, rice & cheese give a calorie count of 311 if it’s divided into 4 servings. The rest of the ingredients likely make up the rest of the calories.


  2. This was really easy, and the whole family enjoyed it. The flavours were great!
