    Loved it! I used onion links and I peeled the skin off before cooking. I skillet fried the links first to remove some of the natural oils. For tomatoes I used Ro*Tel Original diced tomatoes & green chilies. I omitted the 1 can (28 ounces) Tuttorosso® Whole Peeled Plum Tomatoes, drained and diced. Use regular long grain rice and all the rest was as called for by the recipe. The family loved it and so did I!
