"My husband and I (plus my brother-in-law who was on the receiving end of leftovers) loved this recipe. Also, the fact that it was a one-pot dish made the cooking and cleanup so easy. NOTE: My Mom always taught me to cook a recipe as written the first time; however, in this case, I had 2 - 14 ounce cans of Rotel Original Diced Tomatoes on hand, so I used those instead of 1 - 28 ounce can of plain diced tomatoes adding extra flavor and spice."
"My husband & I really liked this recipe. I don't like shrimp so I cooked it on the side & added it to the bowls. I also could not find chorizo in our store so I used andoille sausage instead. Was very tasty."
