Here's one of my husband's favorite dishes. When it's in season, substitute fresh corn for frozen. Add a dash of cayenne pepper if you like a little heat. —Sheila Gomez, Shawnee, Kansas

"The chicken broth I had on hand had gone bad so I used beef broth instead. Still tasted good! Both my husband and I agreed that it could use just a bit more meat. Next time I will cut the kielbasa slices in half. I may also back off on the beans a bit. I also found that it needed something extra. Maybe just a bit more salt or some other spice. Either way, I'll be making this again. Very easy!

Update: I made this again tonight with a few changes. I used fresh sweet red pepper instead of the roasted, and cooked it with the onions. I used the same amount of meat but cutting it in half really helped disperse it out more. I did back off the beans a little like I thought I should and that was great! Instead of brown rice, I actually used long grain and wild rice I had leftover in the fridge (which I had made with the seasoning packet). The flavor of the rice with the other spices was GREAT!!! I think I'll be making it with that kind of rice from now on."
