    puppitypup's Note:

    This is a simple flavorful rice that I came up with to as a compromise for my picky eater daughter. It closely resembles the rice served at the local Mexican restaurants in San Diego.

      Note: The mild enchilada sauce adds flavor without adding spiciness. If using hot enchilada sauce, I would cut the amount in half at least.

      This is a very good rice recipe. I followed the recipe exactly. The only difference I made was that I sauteed the onions with 2 teaspoons of oil instead of using butter since I didn't have it available.

      Simple recipe that turned out well with some changes. It has a nice consistency and flavor. I didn't think it had enough flavor though so I used two cups of home made enchilada sauce and added a little more water. I also didn't add the bouillon or the carrots. Overall I have used this recipe for a few years now and really like it.

      This rice did not do it for us, unfortunately. We thought it was very bland and I had even doubled the enchilada sauce. I used long grain rice which was a mistake - I should have used parboiled rice. It would have helped the consistency but not the flavour. I used chicken broth instead of water. Sorry that I couldn't give a better review. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
