Ortega's Mexican Rice

Top Review by CJAY8248

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.
