This is a meatless rice dish. It is very good and pretty spicy.

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.
