This was a popular dish with the whole family. I tried it first with Taco seasoning and it was really tasty. Husband and kids all gave it the thumbs up. Then I found recipes for Sazon and Adobo seasonings (beware, there are differing recipes for both, I decided the most complex had to be the most authentic) and made those to use. It was slightly different but a very tasty meal which ever way you make it! It will be a regular dish for the family. - 21 Oct 2010

I would have prefered if i had left out the red wine and added chicken stock instead. Red wine tastes awful in this dish. - 07 Nov 2010
