Mexican Rice (reduced sodium recipe)

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Top Review by BarbaraK

I didn't use the carrots or celery and I used green peppers instead of green chilis, but this was very good. I had my granddaughters last night and even they ate it. I think their favorite part of the meal was the "tacos" (tamalies)though. Anyway, this is easy and quite good.
