Delicious! I added some chopped celery and zucchini, 1 bay leaf, cumin and chili powder. I topped it off with a bit of shredded monterey jack, sour cream and cilantro. Yum! Thank you.

I loved the taste as well as the simplicity of this dish. It went very well with chicken fajitas.

I have made this several times and loved it! Very tasty. I opted to omit the cayenne and garnished with parsley. Also, instead of white rice, I used brown and found the dish very filling~I even shared with a picky co- worker and he gave it a thumbs up. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
