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!
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!
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 is an excellent dish. I was a bit wary about cooking the rice in the salsa, I thought it wouldn't cook in all that tomato sauce , however it was perfect. I used basmati rice which I soaked for twenty minutes first in hot water. Thanks for posting this.
We had this as a side dish with taco boats for dinner tonight. I added some cilantro and left out the peas, only because I would hate to see hubby picking out every single blessed pea and leaving them on his plate! I had never had rice done like this before, but I certainly will again.
I made this last night with Streamlined Chimichangas #16371 and it was excellent. I used Jasmine Rice and although I was a little worried it wasn't going to cook up properly, it turned out great. You have to watch it doesn't start to burn on the bottom of the pot and I added a tiny bit more water about 10 mins before it was done. Hubby gave it a thumbs up and it's now a keeper in my file for our Mexican themed nights.
This was yummy. I used long grain brown rice and a medium salsa and served it with some grilled chicken. Really a wonderful combination of flavors and perfect little side dish for whatever you're grilling!
Turned out great! Added 1 1/2/ chicken breasts the last 25 min. to steam. They were wonderfully moist and delicious. Used them for tacos with salsa verde.
