Elswet's Deluxe Spanish Rice

45 mins (prep 10, cooking 35)
18 ingredients
10-12 servings
The base recipe for this came from the Wise Encyclopedia of Cookery [1970's version]. my Wife has adapted the recipe and, over the years, perfected it. This is rich without being heavy. It is creamy without being too liquid. It is spicy, but not uncomfortably so, and goes with just about anything you wish to serve it with. We have it most often with home made chimis or broiled steak. ;) Hope you love it as much as we do.We use brown rice, as the carbs are less, and my Lady is diabetic. Feel free to substitute white rice, as you wish. To make the chicken stock of boullion cubes, 6 chicken cubes to 6 cups hot water and stir until the cubes are completely melted.
