"I've made this since it first came out in 1998? I'd lost the receipe but luckly remembered the name of this. It's not "HOT" or that "spicy" but man is it DELICIOUS!! I've made it several times and even for a company dinner to my Aunt and Uncle. My Aunt and I are the "Chiefs Of the Family" So we"re always trying to impress each other. She was impressed with this as everybody who tries it is. Even if they don't like rice they will like this. You can't go wrong here!"
