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!

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.
