Chimichurri Rice at Trader Joe's

Yet another worthwhile new item - or at least new to us! I was stocking up on frozen stuff last week and thought this might be nice; last night I was cooking some pork chops and figured I'd have this rice with them. It has some vegetables in it, peas mostly, and as I had about a cup of frozen baby peas unused from another meal I just added them in. Did the stovetop preparation instead of microwave; the pork chops were just baked with a coating of mayonnaise and harissa. The rice was nice and rich, quite flavorful, a little spicy but not too much. There's a good bit of finely-chopped cilantro in there, enough to taste, so if you don't like that be warned.

As with most of the rice items this isn't dirt cheap, especially given how cheap raw rice is, but it's a good thing to have if you want a rice dish in a hurry.
