“This is the tastiest Mexican rice. My grandmother taught me how to make this very simple dish and it goes well with almost anything. Add green bell pepper, red bell pepper, or fresh tomato into the rice before simmering for extra flavor and color.” - by aprilr

"I made this for Cinco De Mayo. I was a little uncertain with the potato in it but it came out well. I made this in my new rice cooker...so easy! I would suggest adding some spice to it as it was a lit..." See moretle bland. With some doctoring this could be my new Mexican Rice recipe. I am going to try substituting salsa for the tomato sauce next time and see if that helps."
