This was even better than expected, especially since I had to do a change of plans at the last second. I was just starting to make this when I realized that I was out of long-grain white rice so I ended up using minute rice and following the microwave instructions (I know, gasp!)... but it honestly turned out really nice! In fact I would make this again as an easy Mexican side dish. I left out the Cajun seasoning and served this with chicken and cheese enchiladas tonight. Thanks for a great recipe! I think I'll probably make this again exactly the same or even in my rice cooker once I re-stock my rice supply :) Made for ZWT5.

Loved it! Made with the cajun seasoning and it wasn't too spicy. Will be a favorite from now on. Thanks for posting PianoCook!

This was good, but we didn't feel that it was very spicy and the lime flavor could have been a little stronger. Will definitely make this again and adjust the spices and lime juice to our likings. Made for Spring 2010 PAC.

Awesome rice! The smokiness of the cumin is wonderful. The only thing I changed was that I made it in the rice cooker instead as CYAOS mentioned. Could not have been easier to make and it was done in no time. Thank you for posting Vicki!!!

This rice is great and especially great for a change from white. I followed the recipe as written the first time and it turned out great. The second time I used the rice cooker - just threw all ingredients in the pot at the same time and let it go. It was still tasty, although, oddly enough, spicier. Thanks for posting a keeper!

Easy to prepare, I made this quickly last night to accompany a light chicken curry, we enjoyed it very much, good flavour and a good texture. I omitted the cajun seasoning this time, but will try adding it next time, depending on what I'm serving it with, I'm sure it'll be delicious! Good recipe, thank you Vicki! Made for ZWT5
