This is how we Mexicans from California make our rice. We call it Spanish rice, not mexican rice! I didn't hear the term "mexican rice" until I moved to the midwest. This is how all of my family make the rice, aunts and grandmother alike. We don't put in peas or carrots like I have seen from other recipes. I was told by my sons girlfriend that I make it just like the restaurants. I hope that was a compliment!!
Seriously, this is the CREAMIEST and EASIEST macaroni and cheese recipe ever. You cook the noodles, dump in the ingredients and two hours later your family will be singing your praises! Check out the full recipe and make it for our next potluck or big family meal. It will be a big hit with the kids and the adults!
