    strawberrybird's Note:

    A spicy, easy to prepare side dish to accompany any mexican dish. White rice is standard, but you can use any type of rice you like for this yummy recipe. You can even adapt this recipe for couscous by omitting the cooking in the rice cooker. UPDATED to account for error in rice and water proportion. Note that the type of rice you use and the type of rice cooker may require further adjustment.

      This was a tasty, easy side dish. I didn't have tomato boullion, so subbed a chicken one and a tablespoon or so of sun dried tomato paste.

      Very tasty! Thank you for indicating which cups of rice to use, it turned out perfectly. This turned out surprisingly spicy, too spicy for the kids, but yummilicious for us adults. I think next time I will leave out the cayenne, which should bring the heat level down perfectly for the kids. Thank for posting this, it's a great addition to my rice cooker cookbook!

      This was ok. We followed the directions, but the rice turned out extreemly dry. I am going to try again, and we will see what happens next time. I think I will add more water, and that will help. Thanks!
