I was looking for just the right Spanish rice and I found it! This was very nice served with chili rellenos and refried beans. Thanks for good side dish!

good but it turned out too moist and i had to take off the lid and try to steam off the excess.

Auntie Nez, this rice is wonderful! I had guests home for dinner tonight, and I made this rice as a side dish. I made it just minutes before it was dinner time. Served hot this tasted soooo good. I did up the quantity of onions, I used about 3/4 cup. I used 4 of the garlic cloves, I guess it's about 1/2 Tbsp. (PACKED).I left out the salt and the carrots. Salt because the broth has salt already and I didn't want too much because mom can't have it then. I did use vegetable broth as a substitute as we are all vegetarians. My picky bro. who got back home at 12 am, wanted food as he entered and I served him some of your rice. He finished the skillet! LOL. Now if my bro. likes something, then, it is an award winning dish;) EVERYONE who ate it praised it. My dad, mom, our guests, bro. and me - we all loved it alot. The colour and taste were both really really good. THANK YOU so much for a great rice dish!
