Cumin and garlic powder season long grain rice in this simple side dish from Sonya Dueck of Cartwright, Manitoba. The mild mixture would be a nice complement to a spicy Mexican entree.

"Hi Betty,

The recipe makes 3 batches that are 4-6 servings each prepared. Hope that clarifies.

"Confusing - says it makes 12-18 servings by prep time. And then at the end of prepare ric it states yield is 4-6 servings? ????"

"I enjoyed the onions and peppers in this dish, but it was inedibly salty! I wouldn't even add the extra salt in the mix because the bouillon is salty enough."

"This recipe was really good. It is a bit salty but I like stuff salty. If you like a dryer rice, I would suggest less water like the other reviews said. I couldn't get mine to brown but I think its because I used onion powder instead of chopped onions. This is the first time I ever attempted to make Mexican rice (usually by it in the box) and my husband and I both loved it. Its so easy! I will definitely make this often!"
