I used brown and black rice, used a little more garlic and cooked about 45 minutes. Loved it. Thanks!

I found this recipe to be a mild version of Spanish rice. Very tasty, yet mild enough so that nobody could ever complain about the heat. Not only that, but it was extremely easy to make as well. I'll be using this recipe again.
