    The rice needs to be browned in a skillit with a bit of oil or butter before cooking, it makes for a much more authentic mexican rice flavor.

    I tweaked this recipe to suit my personal tastes. I used 2 T of butter, a pinch of salt, 1/4 t of cumin, 1/4 t garlic powder. Followed the other ingredients as stated. Fantastic recipe. Will always add this rice when having Mexican dishes. So easy, flavorful. Kids loved it.

    Too salty and long grain rice does not cook in 25 minutes. Garlic salt and picante combo is too much. If you are going to try this cut back on garlic salt.

    Very good, fast & fast. Second time in two weeks, had with sour cream chicken enchiladas and refried beans. And cold Corona... life’s good
    My kids loved it. I doubled the recipe since I was feeding 6. I used 3/4 Cup el pato and 1/4 cup diced tomatoes. Everyone loved it, I definitely see this being added to the rounds. It was so easy

    It was ok. I used Goya salsa de tomate con cebolla ajo y cilantro, because I couldn’t find ready made salsa with out bits of onions, tomatoes, etc. I only 1 cup of long grain rice with the rest of the ingredients. It came out alright nothing like the restaurant kind.

    Awesome. Because this depends on quality of salsa for the taste I would consider a salty salsa like herdez . This was great!
