    This was wonderful but I substituted ground buffalo sausage for the beef and used two cans of Rotel Tomatoes instead of the onions, peppers, and stewed tomatoes (saved a lot of time). Also added fresh mushrooms and used brown rice. - 4/7/08

    I added 1/2 tsp. ground cumin, eliminated the bell pepper, and added an extra 1/2 tsp. chili powder. I also used a brown long grain rice, which increased the cooking time to 50 minutes, but the nutty taste blended wonderfully with the spicy nature of the "chili". Definitely a hit at our house! - 2/4/09

    This was great! I took other people's advice and was generous with the spices. Next time I will add even more. My rice was still a bit hard after over an hour so I'll let it simmer longer next time. - 4/17/09

    If the rice was too hard that means that you did not have enough liquids. Maybe add 1/2 c of water to it. - 6/2/09

    I was looking for a "Spanish" recipe. My husband is a big soccer fan and Spain won yesterday, so this will be tonight's dinner in honor of their victory. Sounds yummy and so easy. Will let you know how we liked it.
    I made it and we enjoyed it. I tweaked it a little and made it more spicy & tasty.
