  • Very Good

    I followed the recipe as given, only substituting crushed chilies for the hot sauce and using instant white rice. I found the citrus to be a bit overpowering and would add maybe half of the orange juice next time. Otherwise it was very enjoyable. - 2/28/09

    Mixed review: I loved it because I REALLY like citrus. I won't make it again because my family did NOT like it... So, I averaged the rating, weighted toward my opinion. Conclusion: if you don't like citrus, don't bother. - 2/26/09

    I thought this was great! I read all the ratings comments, first, though, so I knew to use Uncle Ben's Instant Brown rice--it cooks in 10 min. So no problem on the liquid amount. Interesting blend of flavors and textures! - 1/30/09
