    Vseward (Chef~V)'s Note:

    I make this everytime I make my V's Chile Verde. I have tried for ages to make the perfect spanish rice. Have used others recipes and decided to go against what everyone has told me, including my mom and came up with an easy, spicy tasty family loving wouldn't have it any other way spanish rice. ;) The smoky spanish paprika gives this great flavor without heat.

      Amazing! My new favorite rice. I used Pace Hot Picante for the picante sauce and it came out just the right amount of spicy and delicious. Thanks, V!
