    Very Good
    I'll have to try the cumin next time, but otherwise this turned out well. I just let it simmer until all the broth was soaked up by the rice. - 5/13/08

    This rice was a hit! I added Mexican Rotel and some cumin, and it was just wonderful. The servings are huge, so I might cut them in half. Also, I would give 5 stars, but the instructions don't include cooking time or serving size. No salt is needed in addition to the Rotel and chicken broth. - 3/16/07
