My New Mexican Rice Recipe

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Chef Howe

I have been working on this rice recipe for months. I love my Spicy Mexican Rice recipe, but I have been longing for one that is not so "Hot". This is happily the result of my tweeking the recipe until I got just what I wanted.

yummmy! I'm from NM and am very picky about my rice. I made this without the bacon (didn't have any) and it was still delicious. Thanks for the recipe! I also had to half everything because I have a small rice cooker, but I forgot to half the spices It was still good and not too spicy for me.
