Mexican-Style Rice (Sopa Seca)
30 mins (cooking 30)

"Sopa seca" literally translates to "dry soup". A friend of ours from Mexico served this delicious rice sidedish to us and I enthusiastically went about finding a recipe for it. This is from the cookbook Mexican: Healthy Ways With a Favourite Cuisine by Jane Milton. A more glutinous rice dish than the ever popular Spanish rice. Is this an authentic Mexican recipe? I don't know, but I do know we like this dish!
