If you like the kind of spanish rice served in Mexican restaurants, you will LOVE this recipe. Browning the rice gives it that fluffy and nutty taste that makes it so good. The flavor is not meant to be overpowering, so it goes very good with spicy entrees. This recipe was given to me by a friend who makes the best authentic Mexican dishes ever. Enjoy!
