Sorry about this one. It was bland and disgusting. I submitted these recipes before trying most of them to get the category up and running. Don't bother making this one. Laura Bruce

My family really enjoyed this, even the little one, teenager and husband. Will be making this again. I did put cheddar and pepperjack cheese on top like SaraFish said, but no garlic, salt, or cumin I need to lower salt.

My family LOVES this dish as an alternative to traditional spanish rice (which we do not enjoy). Even my smallest child eats this. I've taken it to potlucks as well with rave reviews. Use a hot pad under your dish to keep it warm, or just zap it in the MW.
