    Chef PotPie's Note:

    This is a really good Mexican rice recipe. I thought my kids would never want anything but the "Spanish Rice" that comes in a box, but as they grew their tastes matured too, thank goodness! I like to use fresh raw peas and corn kernels when possible. Try this, I think you'll like it! UPDATE: Thanks to my Zaar friends Rita and Paula, I've edited my mistake in the amount of broth originally posted to 3 1/2 cups.

      Good rice and not too spicy; just the way we like it. I used red pepper instead of green, but otherwise made as written. Made 1/2 the recipe since just DH and I eat rice. Made for I Recommend Tag.

      Very good rice, made as per recipe except that I omitted the carrot and upped the green pepper. A good flavour without being overpowering, I doubled the recipe because we often eat rice and its good to have already cooked rice convenient in the fridge or freezer! Thank you, much enjoyed, made for ZWT8
