Mom’s Mexican Rice
55 mins (prep 10, cooking 45)

3 servings
Everyone I know loves my mom's rice. It's full of flavor and can be sniffed a mile away. She always has to make a double batch for any get together because it goes FAST! I like to eat this with beans, or with lots of lemon. I sometimes also mix in some chicken and make it a single dish meal!
