    Very easy. 3 minutes isn't enough time to cook it, though. Next time I will cook it longer. - 1/4/11

    This rice was great! I also followed the cooking instructions on the box with call for 5 mins cooking and 5 minutes setting off the burner. I made it with the recipe for Mexican Chicken Breast and it was a great combination. - 5/20/08

    Very Good
    Very easy and quick to make. 3 min is not enough time for the rice to cook. I just followed the inst on the box: brought the liquid to boil removed from heat, stirred in rice. Waited 5 min and fluff with fork. - 5/19/08

    This was easy and went really well with the Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken. I don't think 3 minutes is enough time to cook it, though, even if it is boiling. It was a little undercooked, so I'll just extend the cooking time next time I make it. - 5/14/08
