I USED THIS AS A BASE RECIPE AND IT IS VERY GOOD WITH CHICKEN STOCK USED INSTEAD OF PLAIN WATER. I ALSO ADDED A LITTLE GARLIC AND I COOKED THE RICE SEPARATELY AND POURED THE SOUP ON TOP. THANK...
Used less water and added diced green pepper and celery to make this more of a stew. Tasty and filling, if not "wow"-ing.
2 tablespoons red pepper flakes is clearly WRONG. 1 teaspoon was a bit much. Otherwise recipe was unremarkable and not worth repeating
