      This is a great base recipe for a very easy spanish style rice! Super fast and easily adaptable based on the ingredients you have on hand and your taste. I followed your recipe with the following exceptions...added a few shakes of cayenne, ~2 TBS of cumin, ~1 TBS tumeric instead of mustard, 1/2 can diced tomatos instead of tomato sauce, a handful of chopped cilantro, and the juice of 1/4 of a lime. I also used leftover cooked white rice instead of instant. Thanks! It all came together in less than 10 minutes!

      Very easy and tasty rice! I don't care for onion so left it out, othewise made as specified. This rice came out very firm, not gummy at all. I'll probably add some minced garlic next time. thanks for posting this great recipe! Made for Spring PAC 2009
