This is the spanish rice I grew up eating and I like to serve it with my Creamy Tex Mex Enchiladas. Depending on whether or not you are serving a chicken or beef main dish, coordinate the broth to go along with it. You can also substitute black or kidney beans if you prefer. It comes from a Pace Picante Tex Mex cookbook. Oh so good!

Delicious, easy Spanish Rice! I love that it takes items I always (heh heh, usually) have in the pantry. I got to the end of the recipe and went for a can of beans and there were none. However, it was still super! Delish, it is "Delish", and thank you!
