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!!
This healthy Spanish Rice recipe may become your new favorite rice dish. We used brown rice and amped up the flavor with sautéed onion, garlic, and jalapeño, tomato paste, and just the right amount of cumin and smoked paprika. // healthy recipes // side dishes // comfort food // quick and simple // whole grains // Beachbody // BeachbodyBlog.com
