Lovely hearty healthy recipe! I made this as directed with chicken bouillon, and added some garlic salt. I omitted the jalapeno because I didn't want it to be too spicy for our tastes. For some reason I could not get my rice completely cooked...after the first 40 minutes...I kept adding water, stirring, covering and letting it cook more and I'd open it and all the water would be absorbed but the rice was still undercooked. I tried probably an extra 20 minutes on top of the first two 20 minute steps so about an hour total. It was edible at that point but still a little hard. I usually have no problem cooking plain brown rice on the stove-top, but when I've made recipes similar to this where things are added in I have better success in the oven. While I love that this is a Vegetarian option recipe, I think it would be fabulous with beef bouillon and ground beef added as well. Made for the Billboard recipe tag game.
