Submitted to Cooking Light by Maro Desjardins. Different from most mexican style rice dishes because it uses brown rice.

(Re-posting 'cause my star rating didn't show - have used after freezing : just as delish!) Don't know whether my review will be acceptable as omitted the beans altogether as well as the cilantro (only 'cause I didn't have on hand - will add next time). Added some extra diced jalpenos and a dash of tequila. Divine! Could eat with anything (chicken fish, beef, lamb) or on its own in a wrap for example. simply delicious..thank you :) Brown rice a must!
