Submitted by: BACKYARDIGANMOM

Introduction

One of my family's favorites. Not spicy. My 3yr old eats this up! To make it heartier add ham and green peppers. To make it spicy, add tobaso. I have made alterations to this recipe for what I have in my cubard, and it has been delicious every time with black eyed peas, pinto beans, and even keilbasa. Enjoy it your way!

  • My family thought this was very good. Easy to prepare and fairly quick. I used regular brown rice and cooked that while preparing the rest of the dish. Would definately make this again! - 5/10/10
