    Easy, quick and very tasty! I had all of these items in my pantry. I did substitute Rotel for the stewed tomatoes and it definitely was a great substitution.

    Pretty good. I substituted the pepper with carrots and used diced tomatoes instead of stewed(I was out of stewed) and it turned out good. I dialed down the pepper as I'm not into "heat" in my food. Nice change for leftover ham.

    Very good. Not a fan of instant rice. Served it over brown Rice. A quick meal too.
