    I made this recipe on 2/13/12 for the " Cooking From The Pantry Challenge " event in the Canning/Dehydrating Forum, and most importantly for mine and my SO's dinner. As the meat was browning,I added a bit of garlic powder and some seasoned salt. Instead of using plain diced tomatoes, I used a can of tomatoes that had green peppers,onions, and celery added to them. For the chili, Wolf Brand w/ beans was used.As some of the other reviewers suggested, instant rice was used. I wish I could say that we really liked this,but to us it was just o.k.. If this is made again, I think I'm going to use a can of Ro-Tel to see if that helps " PERK " it up some. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

    I made this recipe because I had all the ingredients in my pantry. One thing that isn't mentioned in this recipe is that the rice that you use should be Minute Rice, however, I didn't have any so I used regular white rice. I doubled this recipe and I eliminated the water because I cooked the white rice separately and then added it to the skillet. If you use regular rice this is important. You also don't need as much rice, you can use half as much rice and get a good result. I also added about 1 tsp pepper and 2 T sugar, any recipe that has tomatoes in it is improved by doing this. I also think that if you like spicy food, you could add chilis or hot pepper sauce for some kick. Also another idea to add some extra spice would be to substitute Rotel for the tomatoes. I might give this a try next time. I might try putting this mixture in a tortilla and make a burrito out of it. I think that it would be good this way too.
