    This is one of my favorite meals. It's a meal within itself, but it's also great served as a side dish.

    • 1 cup chorizo sausage, coarsely chopped (crisp, crumbled bacon or cubed, cooked ham may be substituted)

      Absolutely outstanding-a very moist and flavorful one-dish meal-now one of our favorite meals too! I didn't realize I was almost out of white rice so only used two cups, and reduced the water to four cups to compensate. It was perfect and still easily feeds six so I'll stick with this "low carb" version next time too. Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipe.
