Very good saved well and will make again

This was delicious and was even better as left overs the next day. I have made this twice now and added extra liquid and extra chilli the second time around. For the fussy ones who don't like to go without some sort of meat, I added some prawns in the last five minutes of cooking. Really great recipe thanks
I would make it again Mexican rice Mexican chilli rice I’ll make it a game

Loved it, easy to make and tastes great . made enough to microwave next day, and it taste just as good microwaved as freshly cooked.
Turned out a little dry but I had some store bought bruschetta on hand which I stirred in at the end, the juices and spices from that made it just wonderful

Really delicious! I would maybe add a little bit more spices to it though but that’s just my preference

Turned out great, but could use a little more flavor. I’ll make this again and add a little salsa for flavor.
I loved it, tasty and easy to make kids even gave it a go

Came out a little dry for me, but super tasty and easy!
Turned out great. Used more broth because of some comments about the rice.

It was a simple and rapid recipe. It lacks some spices for me, I added more paprika

Turned out nice, needs something to go along with it though.

I modified a little as I don't like coriander that much. I'll definitely cook it again. Simple and Yummly!

While the family said they like it, I would make two, possibly three, changes if I use this recipe again. First, I would replace the basmati rice with either a medium or long grain white rice. I used brown basmati and it was too firm (crunchy). When I used a medium grain white in the past I has zero leftovers. The second regards the corn. While I recognize the three vegetable combination as a sort of Mexican-mirepoix I'll consider roasting the corn first to add a little more color and flavor. The third is to go full on and replace the corn and peas with green peppers (with a little chopped green chilies) and red pepper with some cayenne or chipotle. The carrots stay since they add good color and texture. This, to me, is a nice Mexican flavor profile but is conditional since my boys like the vegetables in this dish.
