Easy, spicy rice. Serve with a dollop of sour cream. To make this a main dish: add 1/2 can black or kidney beans when you add the rice.

I wasn't very happy with how this one turned out. I think the tumeric gave it a bitter taste and the ketchup came on too strong. Read More

delicious! I killed the spiced that were listed except I added more cayenne. I also used lots of peppers (asstd kinds) and lots of tomatoes and black beans. it's a meal in itself when you do it that way! I drizzled it with lime after I cooked it to make it lighter and fresher tasting. also if the ketchup taste bothers you use a little bit of tomato paste instead...I make this at least once every couple of weeks!

I really enjoyed the aroma of the spices in this recipe. I added hot chilli powder to this instead of cayenne. I like my rice spicy:) Adding ground meat to this would be a hit with the kids I agree! I didn't add the ketchup in this I used canned diced tomatoes instead. I served this with the lime juice too - it was perfect. I accompanied this with baked stuffed mushrooms. Read More

This was quite a crowd pleaser. Like many others I also ditched the ketchup and used a can of chopped tomatos. Read More

Delicious! I made a healthier version with brown rice extra veggies (mushrooms and spinach) and fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. I also omitted the ketchup as suggested by others and it was not missed. Also used red instead of green onion b/c it was what I had on hand and it was still fabulous. Served with simple grilled salmon. Read More

I loved this version of Mexican rice. With all the spices I thought it would be too spicy but instead it was very tasty not too spicy at all. The green onions were a welcome change from yellow onions and added to the overall flavor. It was easy to make and and all the ingredients blended well. The only thing I changed was using minced garlic instead of garlic powder. I will definitely make this one of my regular rice dishes. Thanks Sandy. Read More

A family favorite just the right spice. I did add 1 lb. browned burger and used more rice than called for. It was devoured by all 5 kids! This is definitely a keeper in my house. Read More
