Although this only uses one cup of rice this will make enough for four very hearty servings or six smaller, you may double if desired but I suggest to make in a saucepan --- make this as spicy as desired by adjusting the chili flakes and jalapeño pepper --- half a package of taco seasoning mix may be used in place of the cumin and chili powder, converted rice only for this :)

I followed the recipe . . used long grain rice (probably should have used the parboil), didn't add jalapeno, and used chicken stock . .

As for the pace, use 1/2 hot and 1/2 medium.

It was nice spicy flavor, and enjoyed by all.
