Good rice, was a little crunchy even after adding and extra 1/4 cup of water. Did not use a jalapeno because I can't handle that much spice. Otherwise was pretty good.
I loved this recipe! For my taste I would use less cilantro but this is by far the best Mexican rice recipe I have tried.
I was torn on how to rate this recipe. Personally, I didn't care for this recipe. I thought it had some "heat" from the jalapeno, but, I didn't think it had much flavor. I think it needed some spices added like cumin or chili powder. I did use rotel instead of just peeled tomatoes and I do think that helped. My husband thought it was pretty good though and tasted more like rice you would get in a Mexican restaurant. The problem I did have though was that the liquid was absorbed into the rice in the 20 minute cooking time, but, even after sitting the additional 5 minutes the rice still had a slight crunch to it. I don't plan on making this again.
