This was very good!! I added 2 tsp. cumin, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp black pepper. This makes a nice side dish to many Mexican dishes that I make. My family enjoys this as a nice change from Spanish rice. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

This is the only Mexican Rice recipe I have ever liked. It is easy and delicious. Most Tex-Mex rice recipes are tasteless and dry. This is a great tasing recipe and goes perfect with #36634 Southwest Chicken with Chipotle Cream. Just smother the rice in its sauce and you have a super tasty meal that is better than going to a Mexican restaurant. Thanks for submitting!
