I thought this was just excellent. So easy to do too!! I really liked the tartness of the lime juice. I did add a small can of diced tomatoes to this. It added a bit more colour and taste to it I think. This will be done for a vegetarian dinner I'm planning for friends soon. Thanks cmacooks.

Yummy!! It was perfect. I added another clove of garlic and cooked the brown rice with some chicken stock. I added a tsp of olive oil to moisten the rice, but my DH thought it would be better dry with fish tacos. Will make many times!

Dish had good flavor, but we found it a little dry. Also, doesn't specify when to add the cilantro, only the garnish.
