    This is a wonderfully flavorful rice dish. I modified it just a bit. I used Garcia's Beef Sausage left over chicken and long-grain white rice. While I cooked the rice (2 cups white long grain rice), I sauteed the sausage in a small saute pan. Meanwhile, I sauteed onion and pepper in a large sautepan until tender. Then added remaining ingredients except the tomatoes in one pan and simmered. I added the tomatoes in the last 5 minutes. When rice was done, I stirred in the rice. Very enjoyable rice dish! And the leftovers make a great fried rice!  -  05 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very tasty and easy to make. I doubled the recipe and used hot italian sausage. I also used petit cut canned tomatoes. I did not have frozen peas in the house, so I substituted frozen chopped spinach which my kids like more. Good recipe.  -  25 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I don't know if I would call this spanish but I would call it delicious. We really enjoyed this. I used 1 can of diced tomatoes instead of fresh as other suggested. Other then that followed recipe exactly. Just great.  -  29 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
