I used several substitutions & additions, from others' suggestions. I used a can of Mexican tomato sauce (el pato) and omitted the tomato juice cocktail & also added a can of diced tomatoes w/ green chilies, which I drained first before adding. I also added diced bell pepper, mushroom, garlic & paprika & replaced the ground beef w/ ground turkey. As in the recipe, I did add some garlic powder as well as a package of onion soup mix. I added a splash of red wine & a little brown sugar. I substituted chicken broth for the beef broth and cooked the rice separately. It was a lil sweet & spicy, with a yummy tomato broth. It was a great way to use up some cabbage in the fridge leftover from st. Party's day corned beef & cabbage. My hubby had seconds & asked what it was & said it was really good :)
