    CongoGirl's Note:

    This is the "Spanish Rice" my mom made growing up. We always had it with tacos. It doesn't taste like the kind you get in Mexican restaurants; it's more moist than that.

      Yum - I made this recipe last night using a short grain brown rice. I did have to add more water and up the coking time, but I used diced tomatoes in a can instead of tomato sauce. This was a hit, even for my husband, who doesn't care for rice. Thanks for sharing this great keeper recipe!
