    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    Quick and simple way to add some extra flavor to plain old white rice. This was something I threw together to go with some fajitas I had made. I usually make this rice in my rice cooker, but it works on the stove top as well. I've used regular long grain rice, or parboiled, both work fine.

      Very good; the recipe worked out well with what I did have on hand. I omitted the coriander because I didn't have it and used dried cilantro flakes and added that in step #1. I used a blend of mexi-cheese instead of the goat cheese. I also used chicken broth for the water and used long grain rice. I used the rest of the spices as stated; my family does not do well with spicy things and they did just fine with this rice. A hint of "spice" was noticeable but nothing overpowering; my 4 y/o loved the taste. This made a great side to some chicken chimichangas; thanks for posting!
