    Easy, quick, tasty. I used a whole 15 oz can of corn and stewed tomatoes smushed up a bit. I've had this recipe on file for 15 years and I can't believe I waited this long to make it. It was a winner for a quick weeknight meal!

    I made this recipe with one change. I used canned green beans instead of corn. delicious! I'll surely make it again.

    I made a few changes in mine. I used canned tomatoes with chilies to add spiciness and topped the dish with freshly chopped cilantro. The flavors were tasty and the pork tender. I will say that the rice was a bit more done than my household generally prefers, but all in all, a delicious dish.

    I added tomatoes and green chilies and salsa instead of the tomatoes, we like it a bit spicier. turned out a hit.
