"I made a few adjustments. I used converted rice and Mexican-style stewed tomatoes. The tomato juice I used was Snap-e-Tom. I grind my own chile powder and used Arbol. When using pure chile powder instead of the generic "chili powder", be aware that the same amount of pure gives stronger heat and at the same time a very distinct flavor as compared with other chile varieties. Finally I used 1 1/2 cups cheese and next time would use 2 cups."
