Recipe by Amber Matlock

I was looking for a heartier spanish rice that I could serve as a meal. This one did the trick!

This came out delicious! My 4 kids and husband loved it! Everyone wanted seconds. I made a few small changes, instead of bell peppers I used mushrooms. I also added a little garlic and onion powder. For the can of tomatoes, I used stewed tomatoes. It's a dish you can tweak and make your own according to what you have on hand. I grew up eating this dish, this recipe was much better! Thanks!
