      We loved this recipe and found it to be just about perfect. I served with Jamaican Jerk Pork and Grilled Pineapple Salsa Three Ways which allowed this to work as a perfect accompaniment. It didn't have heat so it worked well with the pork and the sweetness of the pineapple salsa worked very well with the mild rice and bean flavor (cause you know we were mixing all three together to make them all taste their best). We did squeeze the lime on top for serving and I highly recommend that. This is a great dish we will use again and again for sure.

      I love the mild spiciness of the rice, and the fresh juiciness of the tomato and peppers. Didn't have any parsley, so I added about 1 tsp. dried parsley flakes with the other spices. Also greatly reduced the salt. I'd like to add this is great at room temperature for my school lunches!!

      This was a pretty tasty dish, my kids weren't to into it but at 5 and 3 you can't ask for too much. It would be awesome with Tacos or add in some chicken and serve over chips. Thanks for sharing such a great easy recipe.
