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!!
Fiesta Rice Recipe - Mexican inspired side dish recipe with fluffy, tender, flavorful rice and colorful veggies. Serve with Mexican food like, tacos or enchiladas, but it's just as good served with steak or chicken.
