Recipe by Julie G.
"This is something my grandmother used to make, but she never used a recipe. It took me a long time to figure out just what she did. I think this is as close to hers as it gets. It's just a simple rice side dish, but if you add a pound of cooked ground beef or chicken you can serve it as a meal. I hope you enjoy."

1 1/2 cups

I don't keep instant rice in the house, I used regular long grain rice in place of the instant. It just took a little longer to cook. I also used a red bell pepper instead of green and lime juice instead of lemon juice. The boys really liked this rice, especially the youngest. I'd make this again.
Even after leaving out the tomato sauce completely, this was too tomato-y for us. The sweet, tomato flavor totally predominated this as a side dish.
