Southwestern Rice

Southwestern Rice

"'I created this zippy side dish after eating something similar at a restaurant. It complements any Tex-Mex meal wonderfully,' writes Michelle Dennis of Clarks Hill, Indiana. 'Sometimes I add cubes of grilled chicken breast to the rice to make it a meal in itself.'"

This dish is good, but I like a little more flavor. Next time I will use more of the spices. Perhaps double? I think this would also be very tasty with some fresh, chopped cilantro (I didn't hav...
