      Ooh! I am SO glad I found this recipe! It is delicious AND healthy! I used olive oil for the margarine and threw a little oregano and garlic powder in with mine; I also kept out the jalapenos as I have wee ones and substituted a sprinkle of hot pepper powder instead. Otherwise, made it as written. Thanks so much for a great recipe! I'll be making this one often!

      Better and healthier and faster than Mexican rice, will do again, hot though, be careful!

      This side is really great. I had printed it out a while ago, but kept putting it off because of all of the chopping/prep that was involved. After having it tonight for the first time, I have to ask myself - why did I wait so long?!
