    I added a dash of chili power and a dash of cayenne pepper. I made sure to use onion powder and not onion salt. Served it w/ chicken tacos and fat free refried beans.

    I thought the rice was EXTREMELY salty. I could not even it eat it. It was very flavorful if it would not have been so salty. - 6/21/10

    I add 1/2 c chopped onion and 2 cloves chopped garlic to this recipe (cooking in the oil for about 3 minutes before I put the rice in to brown) and omit the onion powder. Then I procceed with the recipe as is. This is delicious and comes out like restaurant Mexican rice every time. Love it! - 2/19/10
