    Great side dish for your Mexican fiesta. Try with Chile Verde (Beef or Pork)! It is as good as you'll find in any Mexican restaurant. Update: 1 teaspoon cumin was added to original recipe. I took some of my reviewers suggestion and added 1 teaspoon of cumin to the recipe. They were right. Cumin definitely adds to the taste.

      This was very easy and very delicious. I also made "Salsa Chicken" (#27475), sliced it, and fanned it over the top. Tonight with the leftovers I will make burritos. I'll bet there's a delicious soup waiting to happen in there too. Oh, how I love meals that turn into other meals. I will use this recipe from now on, thanks for posting!

      This was a fantastic rice recipe!! I didn't have stewed tomatoes on hand - so I used diced and it worked out great. I increased the chicken broth by 1/4 cup - to make up for the stewed tomatoes. My rice was cooked in 20 minutes. I tossed it with the grated cheddar cheese and placed it on a platter and sprinkled it with the green onions. WONDERFUL!!! Thanks for posting!!

      I sauted some green onions in the butter and then browned the rice some before I added the other ingredients. I used diced tomatoes with green chilies and cut the chili powder to 1 tsp. I also used a little less cumin and oregano than the recipe called for. But all in all, a very easy and tasty recipe for Spanish rice.
