For tonight's dinner I went looking on the site for an easy rice recipe to serve with tacos. This worked perfectly. For the peas and carrots, I used instead 2/3 cup frozen mixed vegetables (corn, green beans, carrots and peas). I like that the tomatoes didn't turn to mush. Thanks for sharing a delicious and easy recipe! cg ;)

This is a very good rice recipe. Lots of flavour. Colourful. Mine was a bit soggy, maybe the rice was overcooked. I think the cooking time should be a bit shorter.

This is very good .. However the liquid/rice ratio is a bit off as my rice was slightly soggy .. I will reduce the amount next time, this is definitely a keeper in my book! thank you
