This is a great recipe!! I did things a little different and roasted my corn on the cob, tomatoes, japalenos, and garlic in a dry cast iron pan. I also didn't make the rice yet. This makes a great salsa with corn chips. I added some extra spices for our liking such as chili powder, smoked paprika, ground chipotle powder, and some red wine vinegar. I also added a few more jalapenos. Great recipe!!

Really enjoyed this one, Barb. My husband and I thought it had lively ethnic flavors. I followed your directions exactly and didn't see the need to make any changes. I had to use store-bought tomatoes which was ok but I can't wait to try this again when fresh summer tomatoes are in season. This was our Zaar lunch of the week. Thanks.

Another 5 star review. Thank you so much for posting this Barb Gertz. I recently decided to try a vegan diet and tonight I just couldn't decide what to have for dinner. I almost gave up and ate wrong. Then I stumbled upon food.com and this was the first recipe I found. I made it exactly as posted except I used canned tomatoes (winter) and doubled it. I am looking forward to the leftovers.

Very light and healthy. Next time I think I'll add some more spices or jalepeno's. It needs some more flavor. Would serve as a side dish/salsa (without the rice) instead of a main dish.

This rice is delish! I didn't add the onions because the kids don't like them. I will make this again for sure!

Yummy! I'd never heard of or tried this combination of ingredients before, but it's delicious!! Made it exactly as the recipe stated and it turned out great. And the next day the leftovers were delicious for lunch too!
