Top Review by Baby Kato

I love rice and this dish does not disappoint. A little different than the other coconut rice dishes I have tried, but certainly delicious. We really enjoyed the flavor and textures in the rice. The jalapeno was a nice touch. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will make again. Made for Pac Spring Safari.
