This is great rice! Yummy! I omitted the olives and cheese (I guess you could sprinkle some cheese over your serving to melt but I just didn't think it needed it) and used a whole jar of diced pimentos. Very colorful and very tasty! This will accompany many maindishes in the future! Thanks Michele!

We liked this pretty much - I didn't actually like it as much as I thought I would given the ingredients. Maybe it didn't have enough flavor for my taste. I did leave out the olives because we don't like them so maybe they add the missing flavor. This recipe also made a ton! Way more than 6 servings for us so we got tired of eating it over and over. I would still make it again though in a smaller quantity.

This was very good. I did add more green chili peppers because I love them. I also added garlic powder.

Oh MY! This was delicious yummy tasty and really looks good too. Very colorful makes a great presentation both in taste and sight! I will make this again! I followed the recipe entirely but didn't have pimentoes so used roasted jarred red peppers. No monterey either just some four cheese shredded mix. Super super super!

Made this rice to go with grilled pork steaks for a dinner with extended family. Everyone loved it and went back for seconds. Definitely added this one to make again and again.

Really liked this was looking for something different to serve along side my flounder.I browned the rice in butter then put in a bowl with the water and chicken bouillon microwaved on high for 20 min.In same pan brown onions garlic half a green bell pepper. Stir the rest of ingredients into the bowl of rice. This was really good and different. Thanks
