    Very tasty. Did add 3/4 tsp. chili powder and 1/2 tsp. cumin. Added some pan grilled red meat with taco seasoning. This will make a great side dish for taco night. The fam loved it.

    Very tasty! I couldn't find the specific frozen veggies, so I just used frozen mixed vegetables and added half a yellow pepper. I was going to add cumin, however we enjoyed this with Hellman's Crunchy Tortilla Chicken [so good] and it had both Chili pepper and lime juice so it was spicy enough. Such a totally delicious meal! Plus quick/easy!

    This was good. I used one can of drained red beans instead of the frozen veggie mix. I also added a little salt, cumin, paprika, cayenne and black pepper.

    I live in Arizona close to a border town. I have made many versions of spanish rice and by mutual agreement of more than 40 people at a gathering this recipe was voted most awesome. Even my 3 grandchildren requested multiple servings

    I made this last night to go with our enchiladas. This is so good! I added a bit of cumin and a little lime juice. I know I will be making this regularly. Thanks Rotel!
