I made this rice to go along with our double decker tacos last night. What a treat! I really liked the creaminess of the rice, it almost reminded me of chile relleno. I used some leftover rice that I had in the fridge (clever, huh?), and it came out great! Thanks for a great recipe!

This rice went really nice with my baked salmon. I changed this recipe a little bit by sauteing the onions in 1/3 cup chicken broth and 1/3 cup white wine until it was all evaporated. I added them to my rice with butter, sour cream and a little pepper. It was really good.
