Spicy Rice Pilaf Recipe

I found this recipe back in the 1950's and have made some minor adjustments over the years to update the flavor. In summer, I like to serve the pilaf over slices of red tomatoes. —Cynthia Gobeli, Norton, Ohio

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 21, 2010

this is one of my favorite recipes. I've learned to double it when I'm taking it to a pot luck because it goes so fast. I sometimes use vegetable broth instead of chicken so that it can be a vegetarian offering. Try this one, you won't be sorry.
