This is how we Mexicans from California make our rice. We call it Spanish rice, not mexican rice! I didn't hear the term "mexican rice" until I moved to the midwest. This is how all of my family make the rice, aunts and grandmother alike. We don't put in peas or carrots like I have seen from other recipes. I was told by my sons girlfriend that I make it just like the restaurants. I hope that was a compliment!!
Best Spanish Rice | "I'm Mexican and this is often my go to Mexican rice dish because it's so easy. I do know how to make it from scratch with my family's recipe, but this is fool proof and is quicker and easier to make. NOTE: I've made this with green salsa in place of the red salsa and it tasted equally good."
