READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Concoctionista

I wanted something different, but filling and healthy. I like to create one dish meals that I can make on the weekend, divide and bring to work for lunches.

First, I tried your recipe, and loved it! I've cooked this many times, and have found it best to cook the rice separately. I'm not sure why, but sometimes the rice wouldn't cook right.I also find that this gets better with age. Put it in the fridge, and the next day it's even more spicy and flavorful! I modified some things to taste/convenience. I leave out the sweet potato, sweet pepper, and tobasco sauce, double the amount of peanut butter, and use vegetable/tuna amounts that make sense with canned products. No matter the slight variations, it comes out great! I definitely recommend the extra peanut butter though... :)
