    This is a good base recipe, easy to work with and make the way you want. I added a can of red beans, some garlic powder, Adobo seasoning and a couple of dashes of cayenne. I also used brown rice instead of white. Very easy and inexpensive! Thanks for sharing.  -  28 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My mom makes something like this as well. She started out making it in college since the base is rice so it is very cheap and you can make a lot to keep in the fridge for the week. Try switching the veggies up (carrots, celery, and corn taste great in it!) and adding some shredded cheese (I use cheddar).  -  15 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    We really enjoyed this one skillet meal! It's a great versatile recipe! I only had 1/2 a red bell pepper, so I added chopped carrots and some frozen kernel corn to make up for it. I added spices like cayenne pepper, oregano, & paprika for additional flavor. I also substituted beef broth for the bouillon granules & water. I used 1/2 cup of the beef broth to simmer with the browned beef & veggies while I cooked the rice separately in 1 1/2 cups of the beef broth, then added the rice to the skillet at the end so that I didn't end up with overcooked rice. It worked out well! We like to sprinkle some tobasco on top for an extra kick!  -  16 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
