This was really delicious, I loved the addition of the cilantro. I did substitute chicken broth for the water for extra flavor and after sautéing the rice and veggies finished it in my rice cooker. Made for ZWT 9 Caribbean Islands by one of Mike and the Appliance Killers.

10 stars, easily! This is the best rice I've had the privilege to make and serve! Making annatto oil is over the top; so easy and so delicious! Love it! Thanks, CaliforniaJan! Made for ZWT9, team Gourmet Goddesses.

This rice was excellent! I used brown basmati and so I added a little extra water. I also threw in a boullion cube for a little extra flavour. Made for ZWT 9

This was a great, CaliforniaJan. I couldn't find annatto seeds so used the saffron option listed in the cook's notes, and I think it worked well. It was delicious. The cilantro added such nice touch, and I really liked the addition of the green bell pepper. Yum. Made for ZWT9 (Caribbean).

This rice was easy to prepare and was a pretty color from the annatto. I subbed a red bell pepper for the green pepper--otherwise I made no modifications. This was good, but a little on the plain side for us. DH found himself jazzing his up with a little hot sauce. Thanks for posting.

Very tasty rice, yellow rice is DH's favorite and this was my first time making annatto oil (after Penzeys delivered). The rice seemed very mild for all the sofrito, but I'll update after we eat some leftovers. Served with TSR Version of Kraft Shake'n Bake (Original) by Todd Wilbur chicken thighs and steamed broccoli. Made for Best of 2013 tag based on momaphet's recommendation.

Very tasty! I was a little confused at first about just how much olive oil to use: read it through before starting! The combination of veggies in the pan filled our house with a rich aroma. Rice remained just a little crunchy, which would call for a bit more water and longer cooking time, but not offensive and the whole dish was great! Made for ZWT9.
