1/1 Photo of Lone Star Spanish Rice
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!
