This was an amazing recipe. Instead of instant rice, I used 2 cups of parboiled rice and 4-1/2 cups of water. There was lots of rice leftover to eat with a different meal.

Aaaah. Cafe Rio. I miss it. I crave it. I want to start a franchise right here but my husband isn't as interested as I am. I think I have the Pork recipe somewhere in my collection. YUM!
