This is a different rice dish. It has a great combination of spices along with small chunks of avocado. It is pretty tasty.

Delicious flavorful rice recipe. It's funny though I realized as I was eating it that I don't care for warm avocado, the flavor of the avocado changes. There is nothing wrong with the recipe, just something I will know when choosing recipes in the future. I would make this again, and just leave it out. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Super tasty! I liked it a lot with just a bit of cayenne powder, but I like most things with some cayenne:)

I have FINALLY found my favourite rice recipe! I love it with the avocado, but if you leave that out and put in half a tin of tomatoes while cooking, and then bake the rice for 1/2 hour, it tastes EXACTLY like the Spanish rice from any good Mexican restaurant in the states. I so miss Mexican food - I'm an American who's lived in England for 7 years - and this recipe helped me recapture some of those tastes I really miss. Thanks a lot for this fantastic recipe!!
