Even my 2yr old ate this and she is a picky eater. I didn't use the celery because I don't like it. I also used garlic powder instead the cloves and no chopped peppers. I thought that there was too much rice so I used what I thought was enough. This will become a staple meal in my house. - 11/30/11
The wife cooked everything (minus rice) in the slow cooker. We didn't have the pepper flakes or the celery, but the taste was still good. Had some left over, so that will be lunch tomorrow. Saw a similar recipe with bay leaves and thyme in Taste of Home. Overall, we enjoyed and will eat again soon. - 8/22/10
