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!!
If you like vegan paella then you need to try this mushroom fideuà. Short angel-hair-like noodles replace the rice in this recipe to make a sort of Spanish noodle paella. Typically made with seafood, my vegetarian fideuà uses a variety of mushrooms for a totally plant-based version of this traditional Spanish dish.
