It's great to find a healthy dish that's delicious too. We had it just by itself since we are trying to cut back on meat. It looked so colorful and was full of flavor. I didn't have any turmeric, so I subbed a packet of Sazon Azafran. And since my son doesn't like cilantro or limes, instead of dressing it with them, I just mixed the juice and cilantro in with the dish. I love the flavor they add, and he didn't know the difference. LOL. Thanks for sharing this -- as others said I think it will make a great filling too for burritos and tostadas. Yum!

Made half a recipe but used white rice. Excellent with our pork verde.

I had some leftover yellow rice, so I just made the bean part. I used green, yellow, and red peppers since I had a bunch that were starting to soften. I was a little afraid the flavors would be too mild/bland, but it came out delicious. I served it with some sliced avocado. Even the teen gave his stamp of approval, although he did comment he would have liked it a lot better with a little ground beef added in. It was quick and easy to make, made a pretty plate, and definitely getting saved for the future!

We really enjoyed this recipe served this our veggie burritos. In the picture the rice matches the title and looks yellow. This made DH think perhaps the recipe started with white rice? Despite adding turmeric to our brown rice, our rice was still brown (not that this bothered us, but it was incongruent with the title). I made no modifications to the recipe and thought it tasted delicious and was good for leftovers the next day as well. I will be making this again. Thanks.

This was COLORFUL and WONDERFUL! I used chicken stock and fresh ground cumin seeds. I omitted the jalapeno. Very FLAVORFUL and FILLING. This was great to eat on the South Beach diet phase 2. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

This rice is kind of amazing. As simple as Mexican yellow rice is, it was hard for me to find a recipe that was just right. I followed the directions, but mixed in the beans/veggies/seasoning right in before serving, then added a bit of Adobo seasoning and fresh cilantro (I left out the cheese- it's so flavorful and delicious even without it). Just perfect really. I will be making this often... thanks for sharing!

This is such a delicious, healthy recipe. I served it as a side dish, but I'll be making it again as a meal in itself. The only thing I did aside from the recipe was to add dried minced onion to the rice as it was cooking and I would do that again. The cooking time was perfect for the rice. Thanks for sharing this keeper, healthy recipe.
