So much better than plain rice, and the spices were right just the way listed. I only made one small change as I was trying to have things ready ahead of time for company on a Mexican Themed dinner. So after it was made (as directed) I put it all in a casserole dish, topped with more cheese, covered with foil and just heated it up when everyone arrived. Oh yes, I also used a Mexican blend cheese instead of goat as one of our guests doesn't do goat cheese.
This was awesome and it was a great side for fajitas.
Very good; the recipe worked out well with what I did have on hand. I omitted the coriander because I didn't have it and used dried cilantro flakes and added that in step #1. I used a blend of mexi-cheese instead of the goat cheese. I also used chicken broth for the water and used long grain rice. I used the rest of the spices as stated; my family does not do well with spicy things and they did just fine with this rice. A hint of "spice" was noticeable but nothing overpowering; my 4 y/o loved the taste. This made a great side to some chicken chimichangas; thanks for posting!
This is the most delicious rice I have ever eaten. I would give this 10 stars if I could. If you like cilantro and goat cheese you are going to love this rice! I had some Emeril's seasoning mixed up already and used that for the cajun spice ingredient. Thanks for posting Kozmic Blues.
This was a good, quick throw-together side for the steak tacos I made. I forgot to either buy a rice mix or buy ingredients for one, so I scouted around and found this. I lessened the amounts of the seasonings because I mad less rice for the 3 of us. I didn't have the goat cheese, but I had a but of Monterey Jack that I finely shredded. Also no fresh cilantro, but I had some dried minced which I added. I also cooked the rice in chicken broth.(Still sound like your recipe?) We all liked it and the taste was spicy without being overpowering. Thanks.
