    v.czaska's Note:

    I wanted to create an easy spanish rice with ingredients I had on hand and this does not dissapoint. The Sazon is optional but very tasty...I've used both the tomato and the azafron flavor and both are good. I always use Uncle Bens converted rice for a fool proof dish every time! Covering the rice with a towel is an old mid-east trick that absorbs any excess water...it really works!

      4. NOTE* on occasion, I've topped this rice with more chopped tomato and green onion - crumbled bacon is also good.

      This is a great way to fix Spanish rice. The onion and celery were cooked in a small amount of olive oil omitting the butter. The rice was then added along with the remaining ingredients. I drained a can of diced cut tomatoes and used for the chopped tomatoes. Next time I will probably reduce the amount of tomatoes. Using the dish towel to absorb the moisture is a great trick which worked great. This dish was served along with Los Barrios Caldo De Res (Beef Soup) for a Mexican themed Christmas brunch.
