i love this recipe. I've added bits of all sorts of veggies, sweet potato, white potato...whatever i have in the house and it always turns out great. Just don't go hog wild with the additions, limit to a cup or so.

I loved it. Good for cozying up by the fireplace on a chilly night.

I love this dish and make it often, the only thing is I use annatto seasoning instead of sazon. Sazon is toxic to the brain and has MSG.

So easy, quick and tasty!! My toddler and husband loved this recipe. I did add a extra garlic and an extra packet of Sazon.
