      This came out great! I used all the seasoning it called for but no salt or pepper. My family loved it and it was pretty simple. It did take a little longer than called for though. I think it needed to simmer about 30min. Definitely will make again. I will also mention I'm not the most experienced cook and this really did taste like it came from a good restaurant.

      This was very nice! It uses ingredients I always have on hand; however, I found it took closer to 45 minutes to make. I used a large, non-stick skillet. Just browning the 2 cups of rice at medium-high heat so as not to burn took almost 15 minutes. For the bouillon, I used Goya Jamon (Ham) boullion. I brought 3 cups of water to boil in a tea kettle, then poured that into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup to make the bouillon. I also used ALL the optional spices, which gave the rice a wonderful fragrance and very nice flavor. This yields, I would say, more like 8 to 10 servings as a side dish. Made for PAC Fall 2008. Thanks for a very tasty recipe, Chef Mandy in Newport Beach!

      I was looking for something that would be close to the rice they serve at our favorite mexican restaurant, which is better than any other rice we've had, and this is it. It was so good we fought over the leftovers!
