    This is yummy! To me this tastes better than the rice you get as a side dish at so many mex restaurants. From Texascooking.com

      I love this recipe! We can have a great side dish and then I make soup out of the leftovers. Add chicken broth, chopped onions and tomatoes, a can of chili beans, some chopped cooked chicken, and simmer until vegetables are tender. Add hot sauce, cajun seasonings or cayenne if you want it hotter ~ a great lunch soup!!

      Instead of the plum tomatoes I added a can of Rotel tomatoes with green chilies to give it a little more pizzaz. We LOVED it! Had along with Linda's Mexican Meatloaf and we really enjoyed them both! We will have this again soon with my modifications. Thanks Jessica for this great rice recipe!

      Loved this! I did make a couple of modifications. I added a can of rotel with green chilies instead of the plum tomatoes because I like some extra spice. I also added some EXTRA green chilies I had left over from the enchiladas I made. Added extra garlic (as I do to everything!) and it was great! My husband and 2 year old ate it up!
