    I precooked the rice and then put it in with sauté pan with the onions and garlic . It was really good- cooking at home is turning out to be easy

    Rice was a bit too hard. I see others are having this issue in comments. Turns out too dry and hard.

    i was a little worried about my picky family, but they loved it! i added a bit of sour cream and we put cheese on top. i think stirring in some fresh cilantro would be amazing!

    It was very bland. I had to spice it up quite a bit and I didn’t use salsa, I used diced tomatoes

    It was okay. The directions were not very clear or specific it felt like it took longer than it should have. And canned salsa mixed in it tastes terrible. I would use tomato sauce instead and a lot more seasoning. It was bland.

    Refried the store bought salsa and added some cayenne pepper to increase the flavor and it was pretty good. Still found it a bit bland so I'd try to find ways to sneak in more flavor.

    It was okay. I wouldn't toast the rice next time.

    Easy with good combination and texture. Could use a little more salt or herbs and moisture.

    very easy recipe! I added some hot sauce and cilantro the same time as the salsa and it turned out delicious. The rice will go from brown to burning quick so look out for that.

    Really yummy! You do do to continue to stir the rice every few min during the 15 min wait time after adding vegetable broth otherwise it will burn
