      I made this rice and it was delicious...I did make a few additions:
      In Step 5: I added 2 Knorr's tomato bouillion cubes (didn't know Knorr's tomato bouillon came in granules), cumin and a packet of sazon goya (con cilanro y achiote) to the water and heated it before adding it to the rice. When the rice was finished cooking, I threw in a few frozen peas....not necessary but for color. This turned out beautifully and was great the next day too!!!
