This dish turned out pretty well. Quite tasty and relatively simple to make, one thing to watch out for is adding too much water and making the rice gluggy. Better to add smaller amounts of water more regularly during the simmering.
This version of Spanish Rice originally came from a 1970's edition of the Betty Crocker cookbook. I've been making it, literally for decades. It has always been a family favorite, whether doing the skillet version or the oven version. Try melting a little cheese on top. It's a yummy addition.<br/>Thank you to the OP for posting this, as my copy of the cookbook is currently packed away in a P.O.D. awaiting retrieval.
Very good. I served with a little sour cream and corn on the side and of course hot peppers for my husband who likes heat, but I can't cook with heat for the kids. My son ate this up! The only thing I did different was I didn't have a can of stewed tomatoes so I put in 1 chopped roma tomato and a little ketchup and a little sofrito. This was kid friendly and that's a winner in my book.
Best Spanish recipe ever!
This was a great recipe. The only change I made was to add a bit more chili powder and a little hot salt for more kick. Really enjoyed the bacon in it - something I hadn't tried in Spanish Rice before. Thanks!
