This yummy rice is a great way to sneak some veggies into your loved ones who would otherwise pass on them. Wonderful change from the usual red Spanish rice usually served with Tex Mex or Mexican foods. Similar to the rice served in one of my fave Mexican Restaurants in Houston, Guadalajara. I liked it so much I HAD to try to duplicate it when we moved away. This is as close as I can get. Hope you like it!
