For a LONG time I've been a lover of all foods Mexican....except rice. It wasn't until we went to Mexico and had real Mexican rice that I began to like it. The packages we get here just aren't the same. My husband found this recipe online and thought "I" might like it...as it turns out I actually did. It reminds me very much of the rice we had in Mexico. Peas and carrots could be added to make it even more "authentic".
