    Versions of this dish - a relative to spanish rice - are popular all over South America. This is a delicious medley of rice, tomatoes and aromatic flavors.

      Used two fresh jalapenos w/o the seeds and omitted the green peas because my daughters don't care for them. Recipe turned out great. I'll be making it again.

      I made this the other day using Maggi vegetable stock with onion instead of chicken stock and we loved it. Also, I used 1/4 tsp. of red chilli powder instead of the green chillies. This dish was flavourful and nice! Thanks for posting:)
