“Although this only uses one cup of rice this will make enough for four very hearty servings or six smaller, you may double if desired but I suggest to make in a saucepan --- make this as spicy as desired by adjusting the chili flakes and jalapeño pepper --- half a package of taco seasoning mix may be used in place of the cumin and chili powder, converted rice only for this :)”
