Excellent! I didn't pay attention to the vegetable measurements, just threw in what I had on hand, including orange and yellow bell peppers and even a handful of cooked chickpeas. I used a mild salsa and served the rice with some chicken breasts grilled with the same salsa. The rice could use a bit more cumin, in my opinion, but the rest of the family doesn't have my spicy tastebuds and thought it was just fine. Thanks Miller!

I must applaud, Miller! I took this in my brown bag today and gobbled every morsel of it. I didn't have peas at hand, so I skipped it. I also used all green peppers, because that's all we get here. I used a medium salsa and was a bit afraid it might be too spicy for me (sadly, I'm rather a wuss when it comes to spicy food), but it was just right! I will definitely make this often, and next time, WITH the peas. Thanks so much!

This rice was excellent for a mexican dinner party. I served it with guacamole, salsa, and spicy black bean chili. Easy enough to make for a weeknight and great flavor!
