    I make this all the time. It goes great with just about everything. The only thing I do different is I add the cilantro at the very end before serving... I just love the taste of fresh cilantro. Still a keeper! Thank you!

    We just had this for dinner. Dh said it was "yummy"! We wiped out most of the rice with just the two of us. I served it with chicken breasts stuffed with mexican cheese and green chilies. I did add a dash of cumin and chili powder, and half a cube of tomato bouillon. Was extremely tasty. I was so glad that I had fresh cilanto on hand! Thank you!

    Was making cilantro chicken on the grill and thought this would be good with it. Hmmmm, I don't have a rice cooker! So, I sauteed the onion and butter, added the rice, threw in the other ingredients, used 2 cups of water and followed stove top method of cooking rice. When done, I added a small amount of water and a bit of butter to get it to right consistency and added a bit more salt and some pepper. My husband said "Give it a 5!", so will definitely make this again. So, rest assured it's good even if you don't have a rice cooker! There could be endless variations of this recipe, such as using tomato juice or chicken broth instead of water, or sauteing fresh garlic with the onion, or throwing in some salsa when done...... Maybe I'll try them all!
