This was really yummy! I did add some cilantro. I couldn't help it, I had soooo much of it! Excellent side dish for any mexican-style meal! My BF liked it better before I added the cheese but I think it is awesome either way! Thanks!

Very tasty. I love mexican rice and this one is so easy to make. Since we are vegetarians I replaced the chicken broth with my home made veggie broth and it tasted wonderful. Definetly a thumbs up.

Very tasty rice dish, I made this to go along with Seared Steak, Pepper & Onion Fajitas recipe #26546 and loved the combination of flavours together. This will become a favourite in our house, thanks for posting.
