    Very Good! I cut the salt to almost nothing and added 3/4 t of cumin and cilantro, next time I will increase both of these and will try using salsa instead of tomato sauce to add a bit more flavor. Thank you for sharing! - 3/21/11

  • You can do this without the oil, without the salt and reduce the sodium and fat a heck of a lot. Just throw the chicken bouillion in with the rice when you boil it, add cayenne/cajun spice/chili powder and then garnish with chopped green onions when it's finished. - 7/16/13

    Why white rice, when brown is better for you?? - 6/14/12

  • LOVE this recipe! I used the advice of others, adding cumin and chili powder. I also will add black beans, salsa with a little cheese on top for a meal! It's a very versatile recipe, I use it for a lot of things, and make changes here and there. Thanks for sharing! - 12/17/11

  • Great and EASY recipe. I was looking for a rice recipe, and I had VERY limited ingredients. This came out perfect, just like in a Mexican restaurant. It went great with pinto beans. A lot of sodium, so it won't be good for people trying to cut down on it, but otherwise, it's amazing! - 1/12/11

  • Made this without the oil or browning the rice to save 80 calories a cup (which is a lot just for some oil WOW), just tossed everything in the rice cooker. Used half the bullion dissolved in Chicken broth, came out great! - 1/9/11

  • I halved the salt and it was still too salty (probably ruined some of the taste for me). I'd say go for 1- 1.5 tsp salt...you can always add more to taste at the end. - 1/18/09
