"This is a great alternative to Spanish rice and accompanies any Mexican food dish wonderfully. This was one of my favorites growing up." — NANBUM

1 (16 ounce) package
star shaped pasta (located in the Hispanic food section)
1 (14.5 ounce) can
tomatoes with green chiles
fresh cilantro, chopped
ground black pepper
I used 3 bouillon cubes instead of the powder and a little extra cumin and this was a very nice change from rice. Thanks!
This is a good starter recipe. Needs a little more flavor. A little adobo powder would be a great addition.
This was a good change of pace for side dish on Mexican night; however, I agree with the reviewers who say it needs more spice. I forgot to add some adobe powder as suggested and will give that a try.
