This goes nicely with my Chicken Breasts Con Rajas or any south of the border meal. I have recently been to a talk by Michael Pollan author of "In Defense of Food," who advocates getting away from processed food and today as I was stopping to grab a box of prepackaged Mexican Rice mix I looked at the ingredients and realized this is exactly what he means. This recipe is quick, fresh and definitely not full of preservatives! In a pinch and when tomatoes are out of season, I use canned chopped tomatoes and it still tastes great! Happy Cooking!
