Reviews for Zippy Skillet Rice
"I made this recipe and made 2 changes: I didn't have regular diced tomatoes, so I used just 1 can of diced tomatoes with chilies and omitted the piementos since I didn't have them available!This dish turned out very nicely and I enjoyed it!"
"This was very delicious! I added one 8oz can of tomato sauce and it wasn't dry at all. Great flavor."
"Only fair. Somewhat dry."
