Recipe by Manami
Nice and easy, and of course tastes good. Originally found on mealsforyou.com. Update 07/07/2008 - when I prepared this some time ago - I made some changes: increased the amount of onions, added crushed red pepper flakes, added a minced garlic clove. Then I sauteed it with cooking spray and then I combined the broth etc.Also have used Sazon Goya in the recipe.
