    Agree that it was pretty bland. I upped the amount of lime and cilantro to help a little. I'll mess with the recipe until I get it right for my family's tastes. Thanks for sharing! - 6/30/10

    I thought this was just ok. It was pretty bland on its own, but went well with a chicken dish I made. Also, I had to cook it much longer than the stated 25 minutes. It was more like 45 minutes before it was done. - 4/17/09

    My husband loves cilantro and hates plain rice - this was awesome - I used dried instead of fresh and we really enjoyed it - Thanks! - 4/3/09

    If this is anything like the rice they use in the burritos at Qdoba, I think I'll be very happy! - 1/27/09
