rotel-a-roni recipe

 Rotel Tomatoes are abrand of fiery canned tomatoes that adds a very
 spicy flair to a dish.  Mexican-style tomatoes can be be substituted,
 but in my mind, there is nothing quite like the taste of Rotel.
 serves 4 as a side dish, or 2 hungry people as a main course
 1 can (10 oz) diced Rotel tomatoes, with liquid 
 1 package Rice-A-Roni, Spanish style
 2 1/4 cup water (or whatever the package states) 
 2 Tablespoons additional water (makes up for smaller can of tomatoes)
 2-3 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
 Saute the rice/vermicelli mix in a *dry* nonstick pan until its golden brown 
 (don't try adding water or broth, it will stick; just dry-cook it)
 Add the water, tomatoes, and seasoning packet, bring to a boil, cover, and
 cook for 20 minutes (basically just what the package says to do).
 Spoon onto plates, and sprinkle with nutritional yeast (I think this last
 step *really* makes the dish).
