I also had to use instant white rice. And red pepper, instead of green. The seasoning was perfect. A keeper!
Oh my goodness, this is good. I use instant white rice though after trying brown rice. I'm not a fan of instant rice but this is very tasty. I omitted the cilantro as I didn't have any.
Simple and easy to prepare. I did not have brown instant rice, so I substituted instant white rice, and it came out just fine.
