Very good rice, serve with Mexican dishes. Recipe can be cut in half to make for one.

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!
