Yeah, so I don't know what my freaking problem was..but, I had issues making this! It had nothing to do with the recipe..but for some reason, my rice took over 2 hours to cook! Agh! Anyway, I made like a Mexican style rice, then added everything else to it. I also cooked my kale too much...but it's still tasty and healthy.
