We loved this rice, served with Jerk Chicken, Caribbean Coleslaw, and a mango salsa.

Good, flavorful but next time will cut the cayenne down to 1/4 tsp.

Excellent rice dish! I made it as it, with the exception of the green onions but that's just because I forgot it. It's nice and spicy and flavorful! I will definitely be making this again. Next time I will have all the ingredients pre-prepared so I don't have to run around the kitchen so much! I served with roasted parmesan cauliflower and a cayenne/paprika rubbed beef roast.
