SPANISH RICE -- BONNIE'S

This is the only rice I serve with Mexican food for my family. It is a pretty dish, easy to prepare and has tons of south-of-the-border flavor. I made a large pot full for a Mexican theme party I gave a few years ago. I kept it warm in a crockpot for the meal, and there were no leftovers. I hope you enjoy this recipe.

Step-By-Step

1Use a medium heavy pot with a tight fitting lid to make this rice. Saute the onion and pepper in oil for 2 minutes. Add rice and stir until it is coated with oil.
