Now this one is to die for a fantastic wounderful recipe you have to try. It reminds my of working in the WD deli where the ladies would make red rice for the hot bar everyday. I did make a couple of changes I add 1/2lb Kielbsa and 1 8oz can of tomato sauce and instead of water I used chicken broth. Thank you so much for posting.
