Seafood and chilli rice gumbo

Tasty, healthy and filling dinners have never been so easy with pre-cooked and flavoured rice pouches.

Here we use a Mexican chilli and bean rice pouch, but you could use any flavour; you could also opt for a seafood mix pack too - just check you get around 500g in weight.
