    Yummy rice, Donna! I left out water, tomato sauce and ketchup, added 2- 14.5 ounce cans of mexican style stewed tomatoes. Excellent main dish material with green salad and garlic bread. Thanks.  -  03 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Really easy to make... but although I used an extra cup of water, the rice was still pretty undercooked... so I added a little bit more... So for every ONE cup of rice, you should definitely put in 2 - 2.5 cups of water. I also added some mushrooms, 2 large jalapeno peppers for a kick, and a few dashes of tobasco sauce. And instead of cooking it for 30 minutes, I let it simmer for about 45 minutes and let the sauce thicken by putting it aside, off the stove, for about another 5-10 minutes.  -  16 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Quick and easy with minimal mess. My 9 year old didn't like it, but no reason why. It was very good. I didn't use catsup, my husband hates it, instead I used some salsa. I also added 3/4 cup more water, after reading other reviews, turned out perfect. also added fresh garlic, cumin, chili powder, 1 cup shredded Monteray Jack cheese, and 1/2 cup slices olives. I will make this again for a quick dinner.  -  16 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
