Very ricey, and easy to repair

Top Review by Micheline

This is the closest yet I've come to the perfect "Mexican" rice that has been a long-time quest. I was a bit worried about the amount of oil but it gave the rice a depth of flavor hard otherwise to achieve and you drain almost all off. I used three jalapenos that had been grilled (carne asada we made on the 4th), peeled and deseeded but still plenty spicy. I'll work with this one.
