    I made this in my rice cooker and it came out great! I reduced the cumin and chili powder to 1/2 tsp each and omitted the cayenne. Instead of the bullion I used 1 pack each of Goya Cilantro & Tomato and Goya Natural & Complete. I also added a good teaspoon of Sambal Olek. When the rice was ready I added 1 cup thawed peas (with hot water). FABULOUS!!

    This was really good! Next time I would probably cut back a bit on the cayenne. I used a bit of onion powder instead of the onion.

    This was a tasty, easy side dish. I didn't have tomato boullion, so subbed a chicken one and a tablespoon or so of sun dried tomato paste.

    Very tasty! Thank you for indicating which cups of rice to use, it turned out perfectly. This turned out surprisingly spicy, too spicy for the kids, but yummilicious for us adults. I think next time I will leave out the cayenne, which should bring the heat level down perfectly for the kids. Thank for posting this, it's a great addition to my rice cooker cookbook!

    This was ok. We followed the directions, but the rice turned out extreemly dry. I am going to try again, and we will see what happens next time. I think I will add more water, and that will help. Thanks!
