Let's Make It
Place broth and vegetables in large skillet. Bring to boil on medium-high heat. Add rice, shrimp, garlic and peppers; mix well. Cover. Reduce heat to medium-low.
Simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes.
Stir in almonds and cilantro.
For an extra spicy-hot flavor, leave the seeds and membrane in all or half of one of the jalapeno peppers.
Best of Season
Substitute other fresh herbs from your garden or local market for the cilantro. Use chopped fresh basil leaves for an Italian flavor or a combination of chopped fresh mint or parsley for a Moroccan flavor.
