I've gotta give credit to this recipe. My husband is not a big fan of spanish rice and I made this for him once hoping to maybe change his mind.....he loved it! He has told me twice now that I can keep this recipe. I added a little more chili powder and garlic and also added a can of diced green chilis too. Got numerous compliments from friends and family when I made it last night!

I've used this recipe, or a similar one for years. Very easy and consistantly delicous. I added some chopped bell pepper to mine. Pam

My husband, who usually doesn't like spanish rice, loved this but I agree with reviewers that it needs tweaking. I lightened up on the chili powder since I had the hot kind & used onion powder for the onions. Cheddar might hlep for next time & maybe some minced garlic. I will certainly work with this. Thanks!
