Spicy Thai One Pot

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by jenpalombi

This recipe actually came from the side of a bag of Jasmine rice. My family likes it well enough that it has become a semi-regular, quick and easy weeknight meal. As written, it has a nice kick, but won't melt your head. Adjust the cayenne pepper to your liking.

I was hoping for a different taste, something easy to add to the menu rotation. This was easy, but the flavor is not impressive. We thought it tasted like poorly-made "fried rice".
