Excellent and very flavorful! I had extra plain rice that tasted a little starchy and I didn't want to throw the rice out and I found this gem of a recipe. I wanted a little more veggie so I added fresh mushrooms when you combine everything. I didn't cook them like the bell pepper and onion, just added them raw to the mixture. The kids loved it, even my picky little girl. ~ Bev
