  • I was out of onion and carrots and I only had a can of diced tomatoes. It was really good anyway! - 4/19/11

  • This was good, I doubled the recipe and took to work. I added red bell peppers and chili powder to it. Didn't have chicken broth so used cubes, 3 to 4 cups of water .My rice was a little "mushy" though may try medium grain next time as I love the sticky texture that it gives. - 7/21/09

  • My family loved it. Came out perfect. Just make sure to use the 2 cups of broth like the recipe states then you won't get crunchy rice. :D - 11/24/08

  • My family liked this the only thing that they did not like was the hardness of the rice. Next time I will try to use brown minute rice. I also did not add all the chicken broth. I used about 1 1/4 cups. - 6/3/08

  • My family LOVED it! My children don't like onions so I left them out and it was great! I ended up using one can of the fat free chicken broth and the whole small can of no salt tomato sauce too. Turned out yummy! - 2/17/08
