    My BF said this was the best rice he had ever eaten. I adapted this recipe from a Sunset Mexican Cookbook. This recipe can easily be cut in half.

      Not only did I find the best "unfried refried bean" recipe from you Cookiedog--I found the best Mexican rice recipe as well! I got rave reviews on this one from everyone who's tried it. The olives really seemed to add to it. I didn't have any chilies, but will definitely use them next time because they should only make this recipe better--if that is possible! Thank-you.

      This is the BEST, Mexican rice dish ! I usually add shrimp, and it stands alone. Everyone will love and we usually run out.

      We loved this rice. With the olives added it had such great flavor! I used canned green chilies for ours and they flavored it really well with all the other ingredients combined. This will be made again and I will be passing the recipe on to my sister and mother, as they love Mexican rice too!
