This was great! As always I changed things up a bit. Used two 14 oz. cans of chicken broth to cook 1 1/2 cups regular long grained rice instead of using minute rice. And 3 tsp of cajun seasoning instead of the chili powder, thyme, and paprika with a few shakes of cayenne pepper, granulated garlic, and some seasoning salt when cooking the peppers and onion. Mixed the onion, peppers and seasonings with the cooked rice. Came out great. And was the perfect side to the spicy catfish tenders Spicy Catfish Tenders With Cajun Tartar Sauce. Thanks for posting. This is a keeper.

This recipe was some of the best cajun rice I've had in a long time! I really enjoyed the heat that came along with it. I used cayenne pepper for my "ground red pepper" so it got pretty warm. I'll definitely be making this again.

I love this rice! I've made it many times now and my husband and I really enjoy it. The last time I made it I didn't have an onion or a pepper so just made the rice with the seasonings and it was still delicious. I've found that I need to add a little more liquid or cut the rice down a little because mine sometimes comes out a little undercooked.

Made this tonight for dinner but used regular white rice and added hot links and black beans. It was very filling and made a quick meal! I'm taking leftovers for lunch tomorrow. I'll definitely make this again for a quick dinner. The bell peppers really made the recipe! Thanks!

We loved it!! spicy and delicious! Made it just as it is written, I too do not normally use minute rice, but happened upon a box of brown minute rice, so tried it, quite surprized at the results and will probably use it again. It certainly did make this recipe an easy one!! Loved the combination of spices with the onion and peppers. I used half red and half green pepper and just 1 tablespoon of olive oil. I will be making this again, thanks for posting.

Fantastic! Had this the first night as a side dish, we did cut down the chili powder just a tad. Had quite a few leftovers so the following night stir fried it up with a can of black eyed peas, a few mixed veg and some sliced chipolata sausages for a delicious one pot meal. This will definitely being going on high rotation in my house!

This was an awsome and easy recepie. I added some shrimp and called a whole meal. Very tasty - Not too hot - Not too mild...

This was good. There are only two of us, so I halved the recipe as far as the spices go. For the rice I used 1 cup basmati rice (uncooked) and used 1-3/4 cup of broth to cook the rice since I never have minute rice on hand and I was trying to cook out of my pantry. I also added 1 seeded fresh serrano pepper along with the bell pepper since I have a gamillion in my garden with no plan for them. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. This is a keeper.
