This didn't wow me as much as I thought it would. It was okay as a side, but nothing spectacular. I'll try it again with Hot green chile and some extra spices. I used water this time, and I'll try to use a broth next time for some extra flavor.

This was good! I used a microwave rice cooker 7 minutes at 70% power, rest about 3 minutes, then again 7 minutes at 70% power in a 1200 Watt microwave. After resting the 3 minutes I gently stirred to mix all the ingredients. The liquid was fine in this recipe using Calrose rice. I have used twice, monterey jack cheese and also Velveeta cheese. The Velveeta blends better for flavor and also mixes well. I also used Sysco chicken base with water for my chicken broth and that is wonderful to use with rice dishes.
