Very easy and tasty recipe. Served with a Easy Crock Pot Chicken, Chickpea, and Apricot Tangine recipe #137530. I think this would be nice with so many things and uses simple things - not fussy but delicious.

Very good rice recipe! We love Chipotle, this was close. I used brown rice for extra nutrition. We enjoyed it very much and will be using this one again.
