A really great rice recipe. The spices were present, but not overpowering, and there was some colour in it, in the form of green bell pepper. This is definetely a keeper.
I used red pepper instead of green and brown rice instead of white. It was still great tasting and I'll be making this one again. Made for PAC Spring 2011.
We really enjoyed this! I like that it was milder because we had it with a spicier main course and veggie side. The tomato paste made it kind of creamy too. I left out the salt because I found that it was salty enough with the chicken broth. Thanks for posting!
This was very good, and it is so easy to prepare. We all loved it. I didn't opt for the extra heat (using jalapeno and cayenne), but will try that the next time I make this. Yum. Thank you for sharing your recipe, IngridH. Made for ZWT8 ~ Mexico.
Delicious Mexican rice. I really enjoyed the Mexican flavors and thought the rice turned out perfectly. I did cook mine a bit longer, but I think it was because I had the heat source turned lower. Other changes: I used brown jasmine rice and put in 1/2 C onions instead of 1/4 C. Yummy! Made for Zaar Stars tag game.
A very good and simple recipe, another good way to enjoy rice, with some vegetables thrown in for good measure! I'm sure the jalapeno would also be good, but I stuck to the recipe this time. Followed exactly and much enjoyed, thank you Ingrid! Made for I Recommend tag game.
Great little recipe for turning plain ole rice into something special! I made this as a side dish to Garlic Beef Enchiladas (Garlic Beef Enchiladas)and it was delicious!!! I didn't have long grain rice, so I used brown rice instead. I also didn't have any tomato paste on hand, the only tomato product I had was ketchup, so I used it and it turned out fine! Great recipe, thanks for sharing!!!
This month in the kitchen I seem to be cutting more & more recipes down, & did the same thing with this one ~ Cut in half for just the 2 of us & made it as given for a very nice tasting rice dish that we thoroughly enjoyed! The chili powder give just enough 'hot' for me! Easy-to-make, too, so that gives it all the more status as a keeper of a recipe! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars Tag]
Really delicious, and so simple! I did use a jalapeno instead of the green pepper, and really enjoyed the kick it gave to the rice. I will probably always make it this way. Thanks for a keeper!
Thanks Ingrid, this was good. I love cooking rice this way. Made this for ZWT5 (Cooks with Dirty Faces Team). As you said, it's purposely not spicey. I think it was fine as-is for a side dish to other more flavourful things. If it was more of a main attraction, I'd definitely add some more heat. And I would add garlic next time regardless. I did make some subs, brown rice instead of white, veg broth so it was vegetarian and olive oil instead of butter. I doubled the recipe except for the salt, which seems like a lot if you're using salted butter and salted broth. With brown rice of course it took 50 mins instead of 20, but otherwise no change. Thanks again!
