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.
