Spanish Rice

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Leslie in Texas

This is a great side dish for fajitas, pork loin or ribs, or grilled chicken. Originally from a friend in Boulder, CO. who, by the way, is a terrific cook! This has become a family favorite and is a wonderful blend of flavors!

Wonderful rice dish. I made this for a big group (30) so made it in 3 batches. I added some chopped coriander just before serving. Lots of requests for the recipe
