I used to be able to find great Spanish Rice in package made by Knorr. I don't know if they quit making it or my grocery store just stopped carrying it.

I came up with this Spanish Rice recipe out of desperation. It's so simple and only takes a few minutes and even fewerMexican Cooking ingredients. I am not real big on measurements when I make this, so use your own judgement and taste.
