      I made just a few changes like adding corn and changing the water to chicken stock because I had a box in the fridge that needed to be used. My husband LOVED it! Thanks!

      I am in agreement with everything reviewer Merlot pointed out about this wonderfully easy and tasty recipe. A snap to throw together, and it's really a fool-proof dish. This will go into the meal rotation under "reliable, fast and yummy." Everone loved it--the only change was adding a bit of cumin. Thanks, Donna.

      Wish I could give this 10 stars. What a quick, easy and oh so tasty one pot meal. I particularly like the fact that it is made up of ingredients that I usually have on hand. This is a winner, DonnaColorado!!!
