SO good! So much flavor... and goes perfect over rice! We didn't use green onion because we didnt have any... We also substituted Italian Seasoning for oregano because we were out of that... We used the recomended substitution for sazon goya.. Also didnt have cooking wine or cider vinegar... Threw in a splash of red wine instead and it was so tasty!! Served this recipe with pork butt steaks... A delicious and inexpensive dinner! Thank You!

Holy Moly this was delicious!! I cannot wait to make these again. I didn't have any garlic or green pepper, so I used a whole seeded jalapeno instead. It was really spicy but I love spicy!! I also had to use the substitutions instead of the goya and I forgot to add the wine. Still - it turned out perfect and the taste was really really good. It also smelled so great while simmering, it made us so hungry. I served it along side some spicy grilled chicken that I made and it was a fabulous, easy meal. Thanks!

This was so delicious and easy to make! We used this as a filling for tortillas, along with brown rice, grated cheddar, salsa and sour cream! Yummy! Will be making again soon and often! Thank you!

This recipe is awesome! I doubled it because the reviews were so good and I am definitely glad I did! Leftovers for a few days! I did not have the sazon goya, so I used Carmine's substitute. It was just a little too salty, so next time I won't be adding the extra salt. Delish!

This recipe is one of my favorites on Recipezaar. I use all of Carmine's tips, except use chicken broth instead of water and buillion.

Very simple but excellent recipe! I didn't have the sazon goya, so I used the cumin, no-chicken bouillon and garlic salt substitution.
