    Very good. Substituted diced roma tomatoes for the tomato sauce.

    Easy to make and tasted amazing, it was the perfect side for home made pork chilie verde.

    My family loved it, and they can be picky eaters. However, I would double the recipe as the one cup of rice only fed my family of three...with no leftovers, which is not good in my house!!!

    Very very delicious! 👍👍👍 First time we had mex rice! I added salsa in rice, that made it even better!

    I enjoyed marking it and taste testing afterwards. Instead of mixing the dried cilantro during the cooking process, I sprinkled the cilantro in afterwards mixing it in. The reason I gave 4-stars is for the slight dark burnt rice. I didn't think it was bad but someone may not like the taste. I will lower the burner 3/4 less than 1/2 and then the rice mixture should not be burnt. I say to everyone Bon Appétit 🍧

    Good but I used a pan that has no top so it didn’t steam properly.
