      The Southwest veggies and the lemon-cilantro brown rice give an excellent flavor to this dish. We stir the veggies in the rice, served it with grilled chicken breasts and added diced avocado and sour cream on top. It is healthy and delicious. Good idea Chef, and good luck in the contest.

      Definately one fantastic side dish, though I supposed this could be a meal in itself. Anyway very flavorful indeed, the cooking time was right on the money, as the wonderful combination of ingredients. For the topping I used onion, tomato, the shredded cheese sour cream, and grilled chicken breasts, as suggested. Also used the chicken bouillon cube as a choice. Definately will keep this recipe and repeat. I would not change a thing as to subsitute ingredients. Much good luck to in the contest. Made for Summer Dining on a Dollar.
