MY REVIEW

This is such a colorful meal, I love cooking this for my fiance and I. I'll add just the smallest dash of A-1 to give it a robust tart.

MY REVIEW

Overall Very delicious recipe. I have a big family so I tripled the amount. I did not add potatoes. I did however add more spices such as garlic, basil leaves, thyme, etc. I like a lot of bold flavors. Also, I put a few jalapenos. I will continue to make this as it was an easy recipe.

So good! even my picky preschooler and my toddler LOVED this recipe! We took the leftovers camping and heated them up, just as good the second day. Definitely making this again, will try with venison next time.

MY REVIEW

We really liked this! I used leeks instead of onions and diced tomatoes instead of stewed. I also added 1/4 tsp Savory and 1/2 tsp. garlic powder.

VERY GOOD! I didn't have potatoes so I used more rice. I also added some minced garlic. Just perfect for a cool autumn day.
