"This is great, and I usually make it with shredded chicken and sometimes put frozen peas in at the end instead of green peppers in beginning as recipe says. Good over rice, and I love that this is one of those recipes where I really do have all of the ingredients on hand most all the time."

"This was exactly what I was looking for! It was inexpensive, healthy, filling, and tasted like it was cooked all day instead of the 10 minutes it actually took to make!"
