"Needed a quick rice side for Mexican night. This was one of the few where I had all the ingredients on hand and it did not disappoint."

"I am not confident at all in my rice-cooking skills but this recipe was easy and came out great. I used a can of tomatoes that had peppers in it and I also added a little cumin and tony chacheres. I also used jasmine rice because I didn't realize that we were out of regular rice. It was so good."

"This is what my husband asks for every time we have enchiladas or tacos or taco salad, etc. We tried it once and we don't see a need to try any others. Four thumbs up!"
