I didn't make the white sauce and add the cheese to it, I just made it with the cheese added to the rice mixture. I also would suggest making this in a big pot or Dutch oven, it makes a lot of food. I would next time not add the broccoli, and add some more Mexican flavors, some cumin, etc, because the broccoli was just so out of place in this. Oh well, try it and see if you like it. Each serving was 350 calories approximately, and we got 10-12 servings out of this recipe.
