      This is the most delicious spicy rice dish I have ever tasted. I left this recipe for my husband to prepare one night for dinner. He made a few changes to it, like he always does. He used Swanson Chicken Broth, instead of the water, and he added chili powder. It was wonderful, and the broth is still a core food.

      Blah, needs more corn, maybe black beans would make it better too. It also needs some more spice to it, very bland!

      This was absolutely yummy. It tasted a lot like Spanish Rice; not quite as spicy but soooo good. I had a lot of brown rice and cooked chicken breasts leftover so I used this and omitted the water to cook the rice but the result would be the same. I added a little salt while it was in the pan. I will make this again and probably sooner than later. I really loved it. I may have added a little more salsa, too because I didn't know what the ratio was to the uncooked rice. Anway, whatever I did was great.
