Why have I never made Spanish rice before? Oh, actually I know why. I’ve never been a big fan of Mexican food. Much to my husband’s dismay, we hardly ever eat at Mexican restaurants. But in the past few years I’ve come to not only stand it more, but actually enjoy some Mexican-style fare. This Spanish rice recipe is now on our list of favorites. We love serving it with our favorite Chicken Fajitas, but it also goes great as a side dish for many other main dishes.
What I love about this Spanish rice recipe is that I can prepare it and then throw it in the rice cooker. Bless that rice cooker. We could not survive without it!
