    Sky Valley Cook's Note:

    This is a good mild red rice that is perfect to serve with a spicier Mexican dish. Very simular to what is served in Mexican restaurants. Have all ingredients ready to go when making, as prep steps go very quickly.

      I made this for 50 musicians participating in our annual jazz festival. Half of them were Mexican and they loved it! There is no greater praise.
