    A hit at our house! I left out the olives, because my son doesn't like them. I also used two rice cooker scoops of rice, which is 1 1/2 cups. I sauteed the onions and garlic in olive oil, then added the washed, drained long-grain rice and sauteed it for a minute, stirring constantly. I scraped the onion-garlic-rice mixture into the rice cooker, then put the chicken broth in the pot to get the last of the mixture out and poured it into the rice cooker. Added all the other ingredients, and pushed the button. Voila! Tasty rice.

    This is a fantastic recipe for Spanish rice! I used brown long grain rice, and had to cook it for close to an hour before it was done. I also added 1/2 tsp dried oregano, 1/2 tsp ancho chile powder, and a pinch of cayenne, because I only had canned tomatoes on hand instead of Rotel. Delicious! I was hoping to have some left over for breakfast with an egg on top, but it's all gone. Oh well, will have to make more!

    Great recipe. Very easy to make and delicious. I only used three gloves of garlic and used diced tomatoes and chopped canned chilies instead of the Rotel. Will definitely make again.

    Really delicious. Easy to make and very pretty. Very good with roast pork. Subbed a tin of regular tomatoes with a little minced (pickled) jalapeno in place of the Rotel.
