DH wanted spanish rice one night so I made the following recipe that I got from Betty Crocker. OMG, it was just like eating my mom's. I forgot how good her spanish rice was!!! Try it, you won't be disappointed!!! Serve as a meal in its self or as a side dish.
BETTER than take-out!!! Flavors blend well and are delicious! The keys to success for this recipe is using COLD rice, otherwise it will be sticky. Also, for good flavor, sesame oil must be used. I have on occasion used either pork or chicken in this recipe which has been finely chopped. We could eat this dish every day!!!
This recipe makes perfect rice every time, simply because the temptation to stir isn't there. This foolproof rice goes well with roasted chicken or broiled fish. I sometimes like to add a 1/2 cup of shredded carrots in addition to the onion to give it a flash of color.
My Aunt Joyce gave me this recipe many years ago. It is always on our holiday table. It is similiar to other brocolli casserole recipe's, yet different in the fact that the rice is separate from the cheese. DH teases me because I don't like my food all "mooshed" together. I think the flavors are enhanced when separate. Also, I am giving the amount of butter as I was originally told, it is a shocking amount, feel free to use much less, it will still be great.
This is so good, it's hard to stop eating it. Great texture with crunchy edges, great flavor with garlic and black pepper. I like to serve it with poultry, pork, or fish. Plan ahead, it bakes for 70 minutes.
This dish takes no more than 5 minutes to throw together and when you taste this rice you will eat the whole dish, it is *that* good! you could throw in 2 cups cooked chicken or turkey for a main meal, my family loves spice so I add in some cayenne pepper --- because of the high sodium content in the dry soup mix do *not* to add in any extra salt to this, you could add in the complete package of dry soup mix but for my family's taste we found it to be a little too salty --- all ingredients may be doubled --- this is *delicious*
