    Jan #7's Note:

    This is my mothers recipe. Make sure to use a generic brand white rice. It may look runny at first but once it cools it thickens.

      This was excellent and much enjoyed by everybody. I used tomato paste instead of the sauce and water and stock powder instead of the canned broth which we don't get here. I was especially looking for a rice with vegetables in it so I didn't need another side dish. I chopped about a tablespoon of pickled jalapeno and added that to the rice too. A super easy recipe that I'll be making again soon thank you.
