I used mild Rotel and cut back on the chili powder. I also added some cubed Velveeta after cooking, making this a very cheesy Mexican rice. This was easy and quick, and a welcome addition to refried beans and tortillas. With my changes the rice wasn't spicy enough, so next time I'm using the full teaspoon of chili powder.

We enjoyed this very much. We didn't find it overly spicy at all, though, admittedly, we like spicy foods. I didn't have any Ro-tel tomatoes so I used 3/4 can of diced tomatoes and about 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes as a substitute. I also added about 1/2 cup of corn . Thanks for a great recipe.

Too spicy & not flavorful enough.
