"Delicious. I get a lot of compliments when made as is. Add eggs and sausage and it makes a great breakfast burrito also."

"Add some finely grated carrot to the onion and almonds when cooking. Gives it a nice balanced flavor. Also used long grain instead of instant. After cooking the onion and carrot and almonds, add the rice. When the rice is coated with the butter and lightly browned, add the liquid and cook for about 20-25 minutes. You can also add chicken or shrimp and make a dinner out of it. Really good recipe"

"For the person that rated it so so - try spicing it up - before you give things bad ratings...added some red pepper, garlic even pineapple - it is a great starter recipe people tend to skip over things when you rate like that....."
