Hi! I was wondering what size can of diced tomatoes and what flavor broth?
I am hoping to make this recipe tomorrow night!
I was wondering about this, too… Please let us know what size can of diced tomatoes and what flavor broth to use. Thanks!
i use chicken broth it is a fantastic flavor with it all and a 12–14 oz can of tomatoes
Sounds delicious – Thank you so much for sharing!
Easy to prepare, and tasty. My boys loved it.
Do you need to drain the diced tomatoes?
You do not have to. We didn’t.
Must try this, looks really good.
We’ll make this again. We followed the recipe exactly except we had a 29 oz. can of diced tomatoes that we used. It had more liquid than we anticipated, but we thought that may have been from the larger can of tomatoes. The recipe calls for a can of diced tomatoes, but it did not say what size. Everyone enjoyed this and leftovers were just as good (if not better) today. Thanks for all the good recipes.
VERY deliciious. thanks much. I did add creole seasoning a little bit. yum!
