Quick and easy! I used chicken stock instead of water and added cumin and chili powder to spice it up a bit, and it was perfect!

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!
