I LOVE this recipe! I did use canned whole tomatoes and cut them up. I really like this as a side with any mexican dish; tacos, enchiladas, etc. I hate using boxed rice mixes. This is so much better and doesn't take much more time to make!

This is a very tasty rice dish not to mention easy to make. I would compare this dish to be similar to a paella. In fact I added 31/40 shrimp at the tomato simmer stage therfore needing a bit more chicken broth to accomodate the extra ingredient. Next time I will add some chopped green pepper along with the shrimp. A definate keeper in my recipe box. Thanks southern bell2627 for a great recipe.
