This rice was WONDERFUL! No more packaged yellow rice mixes for us. I took it to a meal at our congregation and it was devoured in no time. The flavor is excellent, also you get all the health benefits of the turmeric and no MSG(as with the rice mixes)! Love it, love it, love it!!! Thanks for posting, Sharon123. UPDATE: I've made this wonderful rice again. I did not have green peppers this time, but I did have a can of diced green chilis on hand. Just as wonderful (and no waste!)

Great rice dish! I actually used this rice inside a burrito made with ground turkey. Yummy! I will use this recipe again, next time either as a side or on its own. Thanks!

Delicious! I doubled it and used thyme because I was out of oregano. I also only used 1/2 tsp of tumeric for the whole doubled amount. Thanks!!

I sauteed the onions, peppers, garlic and spices then put it all in my rice cooker. A nice change from plain white rice.

Delicious flavor! I actually had no turmeric, so I substituted 6 drops of yellow food coloring. I halved the butter and substituted 1/8 t ground chipotle pepper for the hot sauce; it turned out nice & spicy. Thanks for posting!

This one is soooo good. I use to make a different one on this site but it has saffaron in it (which is very expensive). I love this one. Had everything on hand.

Although this yellow rice recipe is delicious, I prefer to make Vigo yellow rice. It is simple to make and tastes fabulous!

This was really good rice. I might leave out the onion next time, only because I'm not much of an onion person. I used broth instead of plain water. I will be making this often! Thanks.

We really enjoyed this rice dish at my house. I was so easy to make. I made it as is with no changes except to add an additional 1/4 of rice as Stardustannie commented in her review. I was skeptical about it being able to feed six people but it made quite a bit of rice. Thanks for posting. I will definitely make this again.
