    I have made this recipe numerous times and my husband and I both love it! We typically make everything excessively spicy, so this was a huge hit. I did find that the coconut milk did not make too much of a difference in the flavor of the rice so I ended up omitting that after the first time I cooked it. I also just utilized jalapeños in place of the Thai peppers because I already had some in my kitchen, they worked out very well! This will remain an at least once a month staple in our household!
