"Love this rice. It is my new favorite! And simple to throw together without very little prep. Served with chicken enchiladas."

"Excellent way to give variety to your rice. Great for stuffing peppers or burritos (add beans)."

"This is very tasty. Not being an avocado eater, I must say I only made it to use up an avocado I needed to get rid of. I would make it again, but I still can't say I love the avocado. This recipe would be just fine without it also. Next time I may use green pepper and tomato instead but I won't write off the avocado!"
