So delish! And easy too! I added corn to it and substituted brown rice.

Just made this dish and it tastes amazing! I didn't have white rice on hand so I used some left over fried rice (take out) to substitue & it gave even more flavor!! #sogood

Easy recipe - loved it! I substituted Rice-A-Roni Spanish Rice for the white rice to add a little flavor. The only difference is that you have to brown the rice for about 3 minutes with the bell peppers and zucchini and instead of simmering for 7 minutes, simmer for 15-20.

Substituted instant brown rice and a can of diced tomatoes with jalapeños- delicious, a keeper!

This was delicious! I tried a fried egg on top! It was amazing! Being super easy was a big bonus too.

Easy, good go to recipe. I added some cumin and cilantro. My husband added olives to his. I like to make double the recipe so I can make freezer meals. This is also a good recipe to add to or make different variations. So glad I saw this on Pinterest.
