Used my new Le Creuset saucepan, the overpriced one with that nifty little hole in the lid. Perhaps next time we'd add another jalapeno and cut back on the tomato paste, about a tablespoon or two, to reduce the acidity and possibly the burned tomatoes on the bottom. At the end of cook time, the rice wasn't quite cooked, but leaving the lid on finished it off nicely. It is my desire to remain blame-free in this matter. My husband did it. Made for PRMR.
