    magpie diner's Note:

    Found in a guide to Costa Rica, this makes a nice change from plain rice and is pretty simple to prepare. I tweaked slightly to use brown rice, most versions use white, and most versions use chicken broth. Use any way you would normally use cooked rice!

      So easy, and a great way to dress up rice. I had some yellow pepper left, so used that. Colorful and tasty. Thanks for sharing! Veggie Swap 51

      I made this in my rice cooker for real ease and clean up. I used parsley in place of the cilantro. DH doesn't like it. Go figure. But I did add cilantro as a garnish on my serving. Used basmati long grain brown rice.
