Spanish Rice

Trish Thompson


I can't take the credit for this recipe. This was given to me by a good friend who was kind enough to share! By far the best Spanish/Mexican rice I have eaten!
Goes well with any chicken dish or Mexican meal! I like mine more "tomatoey" so I add more tomato paste and tomatoes.
