      This is absolutely THE BEST rice I have ever had! I made it last night and followed the recipe, except used 2 cloves of garlic and I also used Hatch brand enchilada sauce, soooo good! My 14 yr old daughter was walking out the door with a friend & tried it. She & her friend took some to go, they both loved it! It was delicious & I can't wait to make it again! Needless to say there is nothing left of it today. YUMMO!!! A must try!

      Cafe Rio is our favorite place to eat for lunch and this comes pretty close. It's also very flavorful

      Delicious! Great flavor. The lime really brings this all together. I used brown rice and mine looked a little greener than Chef Lee's picture. Served 2-3 as a main side for a meal.
