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!!

Cheesy Broccoli with Chicken and Rice Casserole "This has got to be one of the BEST casseroles ever! What I love about it is. . . it has NO processed 'cream of soup' in it, that makes the dish taste so much better. This dish makes a lot so I will usually make this dish when taking dinner over to a friends who just had a baby or is sick etc.. . . In that case I will cook it in two pans. This dish also makes for great leftovers if you have no friends in need of a meal. :-)"
