I was looking for spicy, hence the title, and this wasn't it. I substituted 3 Anaheim chilies (which are actually really mild) for the bell pepper, and I minced 1 serrano pepper. I used diced tomatoes... seriously, what is the point of chopping up stewed tomatoes? After tasting, I added a lot more cayenne powder, and added a touch of chili powder, red pepper flakes, and paprika. It became boarder-line too spicy (I'm a girl who doesn't eat spicy often mind you), which was good, and then with a dollop of sour cream in the served dish, it was perfect. I had almost forgotten to add the cooked rice and I discovered it didn't add anything to the flavor, was more of a filler, and wasn't necessary. This dish wouldn't be bad with some black beans. My boyfriend put his in a flour tortilla. Good. Also, I had drained my cans prior to adding to the pan, so there was no "boil" to be had, and I found the consistency fine having done so. If I make this again I might try to brown up the corn kernels as I really liked that sort of smokey flavor coming from the sauteed onion and Anaheim chilies.
