Delicious!! We loved it. Next time I will mince the onions. I wasn't sure how long to cook the rice on the rice setting. I tried 10 minutes and it was perfect. Read More

Next time I make this, I'd add 1/2 tsp salt and use 1/2 tsp cumin. I'd also add a diced jalapeno for a bit of heat. It was tasty as is, we just like a bit more spice & heat. Read More
