      Made this last night as a side to our dinner and it was so hot that we threw the whole batch away (and we like things spicy). Perhaps there is a type of Mexican red chile sauce that would have been more mild. I had an Asian one that I used.....If you are using an Asian red chile sauce, you will want to cut the sauce way back.

      Made it yesterday: VERY good. I didn't use the chili pepper though, because I don't like spicy, but put one canned jalapeño pepper (without the seeds). I hope you don't mind, but "arroz" in Spanish is masculine, so it should be "Arroz Rojo." Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!
