Easy, good go to recipe. I added some cumin and cilantro. My husband added olives to his. I like to make double the recipe so I can make freezer meals. This is also a good recipe to add to or make different variations. So glad I saw this on Pinterest.

Wonderful! Added some Hilshire farm polish sausage to it!

Delicious. We added a little cumin and chili powder. The recipe is definitely a keeper!

Sara September 09, 2015

This was great with a few simple adjustments. I felt it lacked flavor so I added 1 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp paprika and 3 tsp of cilantro (frozen cubes). I also used precooked brown rice and added 1/2 cup corn. My kids loved it...even the one who hates zucchini!

Great except for the very unhealthy white rice component. Try using pre-cooked brown rice. Or omit the rice and this makes a great taco filler--with fresh corn tortillas, not white flour! For variety, you can substitute tomatillos (or green salsa) for the red tomatoes.

This recipe is awesome! Got some ready to eat now and I'm going to add a little cumin and red pepper and top with sour cream like Kathy says on August 11, 2015!
