Great basic recipe! I used bacon grease to saute the veggies and toast the rice. I didn't have veggie broth, I used 1 pkt of Sazon con azafran and 1 pkt Goya chicken bouillon in the water. I did everything else as directed except I only drained the beans (Goya brand again), but didn't rinse as I enjoy the flavor. I added ham that I had leftover with the beans. Great flavor, perfect 1 dish meal,
