Some of our favorite food is Mexican food and a bowl of good Spanish rice is part of that love.  Mom, growing up in southern California brought those spicy flavors to her own kitchen and introduced them to us from the time we were knee-high to a grasshopper.

We want to share this wonderful dish with you friends so that you too can enjoy this simple dish without having to go to an expensive restaurant or buy a box. Get this fresh taste in your kitchen tonight!
