I almost didn't take a chance making this recipe because of the huge swings between "loved it" and "never again". Thankfully the positive reviews, added to the relatively inexpensive ingredients and modest prep time, were convincing enough for me to risk it.
Other than frozen peas, I had everything. The peas weren't noticeably missed and even though peas are well liked in this house I don't know that I'd include them. Using one less ingredient, cutting a little time and cost too, is considered a win.
With the peas omitted the corn is still a starch, but we like rice, so I took the suggestion of adding a cup of rice but used 1.5 cups of beef bullion. Although the original recipe doesn't call specifically for salt, I found I needed a little more. I waited until right before transferring everything to the baking dish and salted to taste, (a tsp. m/l).
This recipe is very good. It's exceptional as far as ease, affordability, and hearty taste. Along with a green vegetable or simple salad it's a winner in this house.
