I had this recipe saved for a while, sorry I didn't make it sooner! I used rice that had been cooked in chicken broth, so while not vegetarian it was a delicious meatless meal that I'll be making again very soon. The other change I made was to use drained and rinsed canned corn instead of frozen. Instead of the cayenne, I added hot sauce plus seasoned it with Creole Seasoning to give it a little extra kick.

This is a great, easy to make meal that's different from the ordinary. Use the cayenne or Tabasco to give it some kick.
