    Deja A's Note:

    I learned this recipe from Rick Bayless, one of my favorite chefs. It is very unconventional, but the results are consistently delicious. It is a little more time consuming than my "Easy Mexican Rice" posted on this site, but well worth the effort, if you want to serve the very best accompaniment to your enchiladas, tamales or chiles rellenos.
