Recipe by nadinegomes

This is a quick way to jazz up yellow rice mix. I got this recipe from my mother-in-law, who is the master of quick but flavorful dishes. I use Vigo brand yellow rice,but others would work just as well. I make this as a side dish for mexican meals. It is colorful, easy, and super yummy!

This did jazz up a pkg of mahatma yellow rice and the sherry note was highlighted. I served alongside Papa D's picadillo so didn't add the olives to the rice too. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
