"I created this zippy side dish after eating something similar at a restaurant. It complements any Tex-Mex meal wonderfully," writes Michelle Dennis of Clarks Hill, Indiana. "Sometimes I add cubes of grilled chicken breast to the rice to make it a meal in itself."

My son was eating this in a bowl by itself he enjoyed it that much. Went well with our chicken fajitas and jicama slaw with peanut recipes.

This rice is really tasty. The only thing I changed is I used a 15 oz. can of petite diced tomatoes and a 4 oz. can of mild chilies. It was easy and tasted great. I'll definitely be making this again. It was even better the next day. Enjoy!

I do most of cooking at our house. I find the "Nutrition Facts" very useful with my wife and daughter both on a diet.
