    This is quick and easy. Flavorful, but not over powering. I would suggest a medium salsa to add flavor. I also added an extra can of tomatoes with chilies.

    I am not a big fan of brwon rice so i substituted dirty rice and loved it. Leave out the pork chops and it makes a great vegitarian meal as well.

    This was wonderful! I ran out of garlic salt so I minced fresh garlic and added bit of salt. Great flavor!
