I chose this recipe to as a side dish for carne guisada. I live in the San Antonio area and found that the ingredients sounded about right and the prep uncommonly simple. To my suprise not only was it delicious but impressed a hispanic dinner guest so much she took the recipe home to her grandmother! Honestly...I left out the mustard..I had never heard of that....all turned out well without it. Also instead of tomatoe juice I used a cup of prepared caldo de tomate (tomatoe bullion). If you love spanish rice this is your best bet!

My husband, the rice freak, LOVED this recipe and asks for it about once a week! Very easy to make and flexible enough to sub if you don't have everything on hand. I was out of tomato juice, so used a small can of tomato paste with equal amounts of water. Worked just great!

This recipe not only got an "A" in ease of preparation, but the taste was outstanding as well. I was a little confused as to whether or not you were supposed to cook the instant rice first (you're not) but I will definitely be serving this again!
