This was soooo easy and had so much flavor! I never used instant rice so I was worried about the taste/texture but it was perfect! This was also my first time using cumin and I loved the combination of flavors in this dish. I didn't have any tomatoes, gr peppers or olives on hand so I made do w/o...but will definitely add them next time I make this. Thanks Cher!

I had a craving for Tex Mex and this hit the spot!! Perfect combination of flavors and spices. I followed the recipe as closely as possible, subbing cheddar for jack and omitting the olives. Served this with a side of Coronas (well, not for dd and ds). Thank you for posting this delicious recipe!!
