    BecR's Note:

    Delicious, fresh tasting rice dish. The secret is to lightly brown the rice, and use fresh squeezed lemon juice. This is our family favorite Spanish Rice recipe. From my daughter. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

      The rice was very flavorful with the addition of spices. I enjoyed the lemon juice at the end! Tell your daughter, "thanks!" Served with Spicy Ground Chicken (in tortillas). Roxygirl
