mexican style rice

We love the rice served in Mexican restaurants. It's so simple, but why was it so hard to find a good recipe?

The problem was solved when a neighbor served up her mom's version at a community pot luck and was willing to share her recipe.

We added our own spin and came up with a winning recipe that is simple, fast and delicious.
