Can tomato puree be frozen? Dietitian comment: Yes, I do it all the time. Measure 1 tablespoon portions onto wax paper and freeze. Remove to a freezer bag or container until ready to use.

It was a little bland, but good. I plan on making it again.

AWESOME! I DID make a couple of changes..I used one cup of LOW SODIUM Chicken Stock (70mg per serving)& 1 cup water instead of 2 cups water, also added 1/2 tsp cumin (I'm from Texas, Mexican ain't Mexican here without Cumin)& 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Cylantro...also did 1/4 cup green and 1/4 cup red bell pepper...SO YUMMY! a nice change from plain white rice!

This recipe has a really great flavorful taste without all of the sodium of boxed rice mixes. It was a slightly sweet, more mild flavor from the sauteed onions and the tomato puree.
