"This is a recipe from our Sunday supplement American Profile. It is one of the best Spanish rice recipes we've ever had. It freezes well. Just needs a little liquid when heating up."

    This is a great side dish! We had it with plank grilled salmon, and it was perfect. I only had a red bell pepper, so ours was more monochromatic than it would have been. But, I only had Rotel crushed tomatoes, so we got some flecks of green along with a little rise in temperature. All in all it was delicious. I'm glad it freezes well, because there are only the two of us. We look forward to enjoying it again and again. Thanks AuntSana!

    Hi Aunt Sana a/k/a/ Chopped Liver, what a nice recipe! The tomatoes in it aren't too "acidy"! I sort of cooked it exactly as posted but changed a few things. Use stewed tomatoes instead of plain tomatoes, a pinch of sugar, & drizzled chopped cilantro over it when served. We enjoyed it thoroughly, thank you for posting and sharing such a great recipe! Diane :) Reviewed for "I Recommend .....New Thread" because I read QueenBee49444's review of the dish! :=)

    Followed this recipe exactly and I wouldn't change a thing for the next time. This dish tastes exactly like the Spanish Rice I devour at my favorite Mexican restaurant. I was glad to see another reviewer say she will freeze leftovers because we have enough for another meal. Thanks, Aunt Sana, for posting this recipe. Made for PAC, Spring 2008

    Five stars: Easy, Tasty, Makes extra for freezer, Kids didn't question what vegies they were eating, One pot!!! Busy mum's dream. I put in red pepper because I didn't have green, but otherwise followed exactly. Should have put it on the smaller burner to simmer - caught a little - but that is operator error! Beautiful.

As you can see, I've been on "Zaar quite a while now, and have reviewed quite a few recipes. Just like everyone else who's been around for a while, my rating system has undergone a change. *****Rocked my socks off. Won't change a thing! ****A good solid recipe. Enjoyed it. Might need a small change for personal preferences. ***Needs some help. Might be an operator error, but can't make it work. As all the recipes I choose are chosen because of the ingredients that we like, I will not give less than ***. And, please, keep in mind that this is only my personal opinion. Someone else might think it is wonderful and give *****. So keep posting! BTW, if I forget to thank you for taking the time to prepare one of my recipes, it is unintentional! My biggest passion is my reading. I can't go to bed at night until I have read something, even if its the back of a bag of potato chips! But that ain't gonna happen. I have over 300 books in my bedroom book shelves, and we have even more in the rest of the house! <embed src="http://www.clocklink.com/clocks/5025-white.swf?TimeZone=MST&" width="180" height="180" wmode="transparent" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"> ACTIVITIES & SUCH: <img src="http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/Herb1BaySTKR.jpg"> <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/Permanent%20Banners/snow-queens-sm.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>What a round!
