      I'm not going to rate this since I made a few changes and hate it when people make changes and then rate it low! :O) I used a red onion and red peppers instead of the poblano. I also used brown jasmine rice and threw in some vegetarian chicken nuggets. While I thought it was pretty good, my husband wasn't crazy about it. Thanks so much for sharing!

      What a way to get my husband to eat his spinach, he didn't even question the green stuff. Thanks for sharing.

      Good way to sneak spinach past the kidos lips! I used chicken broth and green onion but that was the only change i made. This would be more tradional and better if the rice were fried in the oil til browned, add rest of the dry inged for a few minutes, then the liquid, cover tightly, lower heat and simmer for 15 min. I would have given more stars but the directions are confusing. Add rice x2 and the cooking time is over 30 min??? My rice was done before I got to the 'add spinach' step.... Thanks for sharing your recipe.
