MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 4, 2012

It doesn't get any easier than this. We are trying to eat healthier and this is a great and filling side dish. Even my 6 and 4 year olds ate it as well as the hubby. I used instant brown rice and left out the jalepeno. Also drained a can of corn and added that instead since I didn't have frozen.

Cheap, easy, and doesn't taste too bad either! We had no green onions so didn't put any on top. Also quite healthy if you use brown rice.
