    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.
