    Mrs. Ambrosia's Note:

    My husband taught me how to make this rice and now he says I make it better than he does! Moist and delish every time. You can use less Knorr boullion powder if you don't want such an intense flavor or you can use more if you like it saltier, but beware if you use too much it gets way too salty.
