    I'm not really sure how we came up with such different numbers, perhaps the spark recipes caloric content for white rice is for cooked?

    This is the same as a family recipe we have made for more than 50 yrs. Yes the rice is raw when it is sautéed in a bit of annato oil. At this point a pound of Ground beef is added then the onions and garlic. We also use a very sharp cheddar for the topping. Black olives make a great garnish. - 4/25/09
