Easy and delicious recipe. My kids ate several helpings. You can make it with sticky, white rice as well. Very delicious; the cilantro and mango make a delightfully refreshing combination. We couldn't get enough.

I added some cooked turkey and chicken stock plus an extra mango. I also added another tbsp. of lime juice.

This rice was good. Not great. I made it with Jasmine rice - but that was the only change. Could have used a little more lime juice to enhance the lime flavor.

I rarely if EVER rate recipes horribly low, but this recipe needs some SERIOUS flavour. It's quick enough to make but needs some spices/herbs to make it pop. It was extremely bland. I would also disagree w/ cubing the mango. I think a rough chop is fine.

This recipie was very bland I had to add a ton of extra lime just to get any flavor. Also the mango just didn't seem to go... Will probably not be making again

I wanted to like this recipe much more than I actually did. It wasn't bad and I will probably try making it again, but it was missing something. I did use white rice because that is all I had on hand. It was a little dry...I think next time I will add more lime juice and hopefully that will compensate for the "missing" ingredient.

Pretty good. The mango I had on hand was a bit over ripe, so the rice was a bit stringy. But I really liked the flavor of the rice. A nice change.
