Spanish Rice - Great Alone or for Stuffing

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Axe1678

My wife made this today and for me who doesn't like rice, it was great. It lends itself perfectly to stuffing into baked peppers or baked onions or even cabbage rolls. It's great on it's own as well.

My husband loved this; he had brought home some fresh local shrimp and wanted a red rice & shrimp bake~well I used your recipe for the rice and added the raw, cleaned shrimp and layered an 8oz package of swiss cheese to the mixture. I covered it with foil for the same amount of time and he could not believe how delicious it was! Thank you, for such a great recipe!
