I think this would be better with some browned chorizzo instead of polish sausage.

This comment is specifically for Josie. This recipe does not use instant rice. It uses uncooked converted rice. I suggest your look u converted rice to see what it really is. On another note, I agree with Chris about the use of Kielbasa and Polish sausage. This sounds more like a mixed marriage. How about you sub chorizo for the sausage.

joscy -- this recipe calls for "Converted Rice" which is not the same thing as "instant rice".

Yeah... no.I, for one, cannot be bothered to make a "Spanish Rice" recipe that calls for Kielbasa, Polish Sausage and Taco Seasoning. Let's all just empty our shelves and call it ethnic, huh?

Tasty. Left out the green chilies . Had one child that liked it and one that didn't. Think I would try a different meat in it. Very flavorful.

My husband and I really enjoyed this. I left out the green chillies because we don't care for too spicy hot and added more saugage. It was very good. Easy to put together. Will certainly keep it in my recipe collection.

Excellent flavor! I made it on the stove top instead. Cooked the rice per package instructions.; Sauteed the veggies in oil first; combined all but the rice and simmered, then stirred in the rice. Have made this twice and hubby loves it, too!

Made this for the first time last night to take to a pot luck. Thankfully, I made a batch of cookies as a back up since I had never made this before. This is so very much not to my liking - way, way too tomato-y and followed the recipe exactly. I live in the Southwest and have never tasted "Spanish rice" that tastes like this. Maybe what we have here is "Mexican rice". Just wasn't salvageable so took the cookies instead. This went in the garbage. Also, may I suggest, instead of using a vaguely stated ingredient, as in "salsa", specify a brand. Maybe that would have helped, even though I like the taste of the salsa I used. There are so many brands, each with their own flavor, that it leaves one at a loss as to which kind to use.

This recipe is awesome just as is. I've also made it with brown rice. Love it with shredded cheese and a dollop is sour cream and warm tortillas.

Sce I don't useinstant rice (as this recipe does) would make on stovetop, leaving out green chiles and *most* of taco seasoning (not fond of overly spiced foods). Would add italian herbs and pinch of taco seasoning, plus sweet green peppers nd half a sweet onion or minced dried onion.
