A hit at our house! I left out the olives, because my son doesn't like them. I also used two rice cooker scoops of rice, which is 1 1/2 cups. I sauteed the onions and garlic in olive oil, then added the washed, drained long-grain rice and sauteed it for a minute, stirring constantly. I scraped the onion-garlic-rice mixture into the rice cooker, then put the chicken broth in the pot to get the last of the mixture out and poured it into the rice cooker. Added all the other ingredients, and pushed the button. Voila! Tasty rice.

This is a fantastic recipe for Spanish rice! I used brown long grain rice, and had to cook it for close to an hour before it was done. I also added 1/2 tsp dried oregano, 1/2 tsp ancho chile powder, and a pinch of cayenne, because I only had canned tomatoes on hand instead of Rotel. Delicious! I was hoping to have some left over for breakfast with an egg on top, but it's all gone. Oh well, will have to make more!

Great recipe. Very easy to make and delicious. I only used three gloves of garlic and used diced tomatoes and chopped canned chilies instead of the Rotel. Will definitely make again.

Delicious. The flavors go so well together in a great balance. Spicier than I anticipated. We used a combo of black olives and green manzanilla olives. We served this alongside chorizo sausage. Made for ZWT5 for the Genies of Gourmet.

Fantastic rice dish! Served with a salsa chiken dish and everyone raved more about the rice than the main dish! Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT.

A very flavoursome rice which we really enjoyed and which I'll certainly make again. I made this using Aldi's Italian tomatoes (without any chilies), my Vegetable Stock and my favourite kalamata olives. Loved how much garlic there was in this! :) I also added a cup of thinly sliced mushrooms and some oregano, rosemary, sage and thyme. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Sue! Made for ZWT 5.

This recipe is fantastic, easy and soooo tasty you could make a meal out it by itself! I also cut down on the garlic due to having it in limited supply at the moment but I can imagine that the full amount would only improve the recipe! I used vegan chicken flavoured stock. Made for the Spanish leg of ZWT5

This rice has great flavor and texture. The peas are a great way to get the kids to eat their veggies. Next time though I will make it with the mild Rotel for the kids, but DH and I love the original. Made for ZWT5.
