This recipe is really good. A definite keeper. DH added chunky hot picante sauce to his at the table and pronounced it a 5*. DS and I preferred it without the picante sauce. It has a light lemon/savory flavor. I did use regular long grain rice and adjusted the liquid and cooking time accordingly, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for sharing.
