Reviews for Southwestern Rice
"Great sidedish, amazing flavor and easy to make."
"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!"
"It is easy to make and it tasted delicious."
"I do most of cooking at our house. I find the "Nutrition Facts" very useful with my wife and daughter both on a diet."
