    This is the recipe from the old Sunset Mexican Cook Book that I grew up with. The best Spanish/Mexican rice ever!

    This is the BEST, Mexican rice dish ! I usually add shrimp, and it stands alone. Everyone will love and we usually run out.

    Not only did I find the best "unfried refried bean" recipe from you Cookiedog--I found the best Mexican rice recipe as well! I got rave reviews on this one from everyone who's tried it. The olives really seemed to add to it. I didn't have any chilies, but will definitely use them next time because they should only make this recipe better--if that is possible! Thank-you.

    We loved this rice. With the olives added it had such great flavor! I used canned green chilies for ours and they flavored it really well with all the other ingredients combined. This will be made again and I will be passing the recipe on to my sister and mother, as they love Mexican rice too!

    This is a nice blend of bold flavors! My guys really liked the olives. I can definitely see myself making this again. Thanks for posting!
