      This is very good but I think Spanish Rice would be a better name for it. It's not at all like the rice one would get in a Mexican restaurant. I added 1 clove of garlic because the recipe didn't say how much and it was fine. I also used 1/2 tsp. of cumin. Thanks for sharing.

      Very tasty! I ate this with Southwest chicken that's here on the zaar and they went together so good! Curious though, I noticed in direction #2 it says something about garlic but I didn't see it in the ingredient list...was it supposed to be added?

      And our daughter thought she only liked the "boxed" stuff! I'll be making this recipe from now on. I used Pace Thick and Chunky medium Salsa and added a little Mexican Cheese Mixture on each serving. Delish! Thanks for posting!
