Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This dish is pretty good. This dish is pretty good. I used brown rice and added chopped hard fried eggs to make it more like a fried rice. The eggs added tons of flavor...I added one egg per person. This fed four people! I also added orange and red bell pepper for color and little extra kick! Overall, very good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This was definitely easy to make and it seemed healthy. This was definitely easy to make and it seemed healthy. It didn't have a whole lot of flavor, besides the jalapenos. Even though I discarded the membranes and seeds, it was still a little too hot for my tastes. I would add some other sort of spices next time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good. Very good. Excellent blend of flavors. I mused the seeds from the jalapenos to make it spicy. Only negative was that the rice was chewy.
