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!

I made this to go with fajitas and it was pretty good and easy to make. I didn't use the green onion because I was out of them, but I think they were needed for the good flavor they'd add. I think I'll add a little cilantro next time too for no other reason than I love cilantro. I'll definately make this again. It was a nice change of pace from the usual Mexican rice or beans, which I normally would make. Thanks for sharing. This is a winner.

I made your rice to accompany chicken fajitas and it was a PERFECT choice! I used beef base (plus water) for the broth and omitted the green onions (I was out). I loved the mix of spices and the texture of the pinto beans.This was definitely restaurant worthy. Thanks Delish, for posting a recipe I will make often! Roxygirl

These were great. Nice flavor without being too overpowering like some of the boxed spanish rice. But just as easy as making them from a box. I doubled the recipe and used one can of pinto and one can of black beans. The kids asked for thirds.

I made this when I invited some friends for a Mexican food dinner, and they all thought it was one of the best they've had. It was easy to make and a great part of the dinner.

Very yummy, says DD and I agree - and easy to make too. I also used blacks beans. Next time I go to a potluck, I'm going to bring this dish.

I LOVE this rice! When I was making it, the cumin smelled so strong that I was afraid it would be too much - but it wasn't at all! This rice has the perfect amount of seasoning. We love black beans so we used those instead of pinto beans. This rice alone would make a great lunch or light dinner, but I served it along with your Creamy Tex Mex Chicken Enchiladas Creamy Tex Mex Chicken Enchiladas. Together they made a delicious meal. Thank you!
