I found this recipe (or a variation) on another site, and its ingenuity and versatility are what struck me most. It is completely versatile as long as you have rice, peanuts or peanut butter, tomatoes (canned, fresh, salsa...whatever), and some kinds of vegetables. I highly recommend using the onion/garlic, but the proportions aren't crucial. Other than that, what you add is up to you: bell peppers, hot peppers, mushrooms, potato, squash, carrots, celery, brocolli would all work. If you don't have vegetable or chicken broth, water and some (optional) salt does just fine. Chili powder is not necessary, and as others have said, various spcie combinations all work. If you're not comfortable making changes, the recipe as written is good, but might get boring ;-) Tip: base the cook time after adding the rice on the simmer time provided on the rice package directions.
