I really liked this one! I had some leftover salsa rice from another recipe, so I used that as the base here, then followed the directions as written except for using red pepper instead of green. Loved every bite, and can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Made for ZWT8

Made for ZWT7 and enjoyed VERY MUCH. I did experience some difficulty getting it out of the pan-but it is SO GOOD.
