This is a good basic recipe, but try adding sliced turkey or other smoked sausage for a great flavor!

I happened to have all the ingredients on hand, but had 1 1/2 c cooked white rice Instead of instant variety. I thought it tasted pretty bland, no spices! I did add about a Tbsp of dry thyme and salt and pepper. But, as I was putting away the left over, I added about 1/4 cup Pico-de-Gallo & cut the kernels off an ear of cooked corn. THe next time I served it, it was REALLY TASTY! The fresh corn added a nice crunch, and the Pico-de-Gallo added a Mexican flavor. (And I got rid of some left-overs,). Some salsa could substitute for Pico-de-Gallo.

Super easy and fast to make! I'd add two cans of tomatoes just because it can be a little dry since the liquid is absorbed into the rice.

I didn't have any rice so I added pastine. I didn't have any green peppers either so I added red onion because I had it on hand. I did add a chopped chipotle in adobo and 2 cloves of pressed garlic. It was very easy and very good.
