Cumin Rice With Avocado

So I'm constantly looking for Mexican Side Dishes.  Although I could eat refried beans 5 of 7 days a week, I don't think D could.  So when I found this recipe, I thought we should give it a try.

It was very good and we would have again.  It makes me like restaurant Mexican Rice even less.
