My DH and I where at my mother's house and my Puerto Rican grandmother made this rice with peas. He asked if I could duplicate it and I told him well I could try....OMG!!! So glad I used this recipe...it came so close to hers and he loved it!!! The only thing a did different was sub out corn for the peas...Yummy!!!! Thx 4 sharing!

This recipe was easy for sure, but I felt like it lacked flavor someone. I think that i may have needed some more spices. I couldn't even taste the cumin or garlic powder.

I've made this recipe at least a dozen times or more now! I use what I have on hand... onion powder and minced garlic, and I fry nothing, I just throw it all in together and make it in the microwave. Large bowl and cover with a plate for 22 minutes on 6 power. Comes out perfect every time and no burnt rice on the bottom! I will never buy Zataran's prepared rice ever ever again! LOVE IT!

I looked up a recipe for yellow rice while I was standing in the aisle of my local grocery store, dismayed at all the weird stuff the packaged rice mixes add in. Gross. I thought this would be simple and tasty, and I was not disappointed! It was the perfect complement to the shrimp fajitas I made, was simple to make, and my wife loved it so much she had two helpings! Turmeric is some awesome stuff, and it makes this rice look beautiful on the plate. Thanks for an easy, delicious recipe!

Ok so you are looking for yellow rice recipes quit while you are ahead! This came out spot on perfect despite what my bag of rice told me how to cook it I did it this way and it was sublime. Made a few changes..... added extra onion, went with 1 garlic clove, a sprinkle of fresh cilantro and fresh dill weed, tiny bit of black pepper, 3 pinches of curry powder, sounds weird but a pinch of meat tenderizer powder and a pinch of Goya Ham flavored concentrate (makes it taste like meat while there is none).

We made this with extra shallots and it was amazing. Definitely will be a regular dish in our house. Thank you.

Great recipe. I didn't use peas but I did add some diced green pablano peppers to the onion and garlic saute. Big hit at dinner, my neighbor had multiple servings of the rice. The recipe's a keeper.
