Outstanding. The cumin and cilantro make this dish sing. I served this as a side dish with Chicken Enchiladas. My compliments to you Karen for a wonderful Mexican side dish.

Really nice side dish to compliment a mexican meal. But a tasty rice dish on it's own as well. Very nice blend of flavors. A much welcome alternative to traditional spanish rice! A keeper for sure!

Great rice; spicy and flavourful. I omitted cumin (because I didn't have it) and I added more salt. I was cooking this for my a few friends in the dorm lounge; by the time I was done, a throng of hungry roomates were ready to dig in. Thank you for the recipe!
