Sometimes the best thing about ordering up a combo-platter at a mexican restaurant is the side dishes - beans, guacamole, RICE... We loved this tender rice studded with bits of tomato, green pepper, and some unusual spices. It was the perfect side dish for Tacoritos (see next post...)
After all the weight-gain fav’s that seem to be EVERYWHERE during the holidays - mexican food sounds so gooooooood. I’ve been looking for a good spanish rice recipe for a long time - and I found (a version of) this on TasteofHome.com - but it called for ground turkey. Somehow, turkey this time of year is just a LITTLE too close to the last few holidays - so I opted to make it meatless.
With the chunks of diced green pepper and onion - it was terrific.
was wonderful - not too mild, but just enough pizzaz...
