Love this rice! I’ve made it several times in the rice cooker. I put all the ingredients into the rice cooker and just set it on “white rice” and it came out perfectly. I didn’t add sugar and it tasted just fine. This goes really well with any Mexican-type dish.

This was a super easy, yummy addition to our soft taco dinner. The kids loved it as it is mild. I would have loved to have a little bit more flavor, but the recipe is a great base to play with. Thanks for sharing!
