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).
