This is the recipe for my grandma's rice. Being Mexican, this is about as authentic as you can get. Makes a great side dish to grilled meat or vegetables.
I was having a mexican themed dinner party so was a little worried about how this would turn out, having never made it before. From California, I've always loved Mexican Food and wanted to make "that rice" which always came with the meal in good restaraunts. Happily, I was not dissappointed! I always doubled-up on the spices and added extra salt,pepper and cumin (and a small finely chopped red onion) - result was some of the best Mexican Rice ever. THANKS for the recipe... my UK guests were really impressed. - 15 Jan 2012
