    I haven’t tried it, but it looks good except for the chiles & cilantro.

  2. would have never thought to put sweet potatoes and rice together.

    tried this recipe tonight, the 1/2 c stock may be an error, definitely not enough liquid.( may have meant 1 1/2C) After 45 min the rice was still crunchy and on the verge of burning.Adding more liquid later ( another 20 min) didn’t solve the problem.
    Had to toss it all.
