We really enjoyed this dish with our tacos last night. I had a huge jalapeño pepper and used the seeds and all so it had plenty of zip! I had about 3/4 cup of black bean and corn salsa in the fridge and I mixed that into the rice as well. I served the cheese melted over the rice vs stirred in. Overall very tasty and I would make it again. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for PAC Spring 2011.
A great side for other Mexican-style food; milder than expected and colorful with the peppers and tomato. I find I don't care for working with instant rice very much, and had to adjust the liquid while cooking; needed to add a dash and added too much. Easy to do, and easy to time with the main dish, precisely because of that instant rice not needing a lot of cooking time. Made for PAC.
