    Made it like the recipe and it was delicious. Loved it.  -  26 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I'm not doing carbs or most dairy at the moment, so this was a welcome find. I have made it once with curry and once with garlic seasoning, next time might try cumin or coriander, as we love spices! served with the Lemon Butter Chicken recipe from this site, so good. cook it longer and it's more like a mashed squash consistency, or less for chewy/crunchy. def in the rotation , thanks!  -  02 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a low carb version of Mexican rice. It is very easy to throw together and very tasty, especially if you use homemade salsa. Thank you for the recipe.  -  16 Oct 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
