Directions Step-By-Step

Saute in saucepan, with a tight Fitting Lid, on low heat.
Butter, Jalapenos, Onions and garlic.
ADD 2 Cups rice, Toss & saute again to coat the Rice in the Oils.

when you coat all the rice in the Oils its going to help the rice to stay seperated when it cooks, so it don't get gummy or sticky.

Paprika, Cayenne, Cumin, Salt.
Stir in and toss well.

Now, Set timer for another 9 Min, (DO NOT PEEK!!!)
After 9 min,
(Secret # 2 & Very Important Step). . . .
FLUFF RICE, with a big Meat Fork.
you should have very fluffy rice, full of Flavor, that seperates with the fork, and does not stick together.

GARNISH WITH chopped "GREEN ONIONS" ON TOP TO SERVE.

SECRETS to this "FOOL PROOF" Spanish RICE ARE:

Oh! This is very yummy! I made it the other night and we loved it. I added a can of black beans to it for my daughter (she is vegetarian and wanted to add a little more protein) and I used veggie stock in place of the chicken stock and wild rice (because that is all we had). We absolutely love it! (I had to cook a little longer because of the wild rice). Thank you for sharing this recipe. It is a keeper. My daughter already asked me to make it again! :)
