1 1/4 cups
uncooked instant rice
1 (14.5 ounce) can
chopped fresh cilantro
we eat alot of Mexican dishes and this goes perfectly with them. I use Rotel tomatoes. Its easy and delicious!
Fast and easy. I added 1/4 jalapino to give it just a bit of heat. I will next time stir in the cilantro just before serving.
Very good and easy recipe. The only changes I made were used beef broth, cause that is all I had and used Rotel instead of diced tomatoes. YUM!
I used Rotel instead of plain diced tomatoes - the green chiles give it a little extra kick. I also added a good shake of garlic powder and cumin. Perfect!
was really good and easy to make... the kids even helped... thanks
I like how quick this was, but I think it needs some chili powder. Good but not the best
Very good recipe. The only thing I did different was instead of the tomatoes I used a can of ROTEL Chili Fixin's for a little extra zing.
Not bad. As others recommended I used diced tomatoes w/ green chiles, I added a spoonful of tomato paste to boost the tomato flavor, vegetable broth (to make it vegetarian), a dash of cumin and a little chili powder. It was more flavorful this way and I would probably make this again for a quick throw together side dish. Made it as an accompaniment to the Delicious Black Bean Burrito recipe from this site, which I highly recommend.
