Very good rice, although in my mind not entirely authentic. My husband IS an authentic Mexican, and his mother's rice is nothing like this. It may just be a regional thing, though - I saw a few comments that this rice is similar to that served in Arizona restaurants, whereas my in-laws are in Texas and most of the rice served in those Mexican restaurants are very similar to my mother-in-law's. Although here in the northeast I find most Mexican restaurant rice similar to what I'm used to, also. But, anyway....
Next time I will: omit the green pepper as their taste tends to bully the other flavors, up the cumin to 3/4 tsp, and stir in the cilantro after the rice is cooked to keep it's fresh, earthy flavor intact.
