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.
