Reviews for Mom's Spanish Rice
"Delicious, super fast recipe. Made it for my mom to serve to company. Course, I had to taste it to make sure it was good...you betcha!!! I used tri-color bell pepper instead of green, and added a touch of crushed red pepper. Passed grated cheese at the table. She used leftovers as a base for a frittata!!"
"It tasted very bland, like it was missing something, maybe more salt or more of the seasonings. I followed the recipe but I didn't like it."
"This is similar to my recipe only I fry bacon, cook the hamburger and veggies in the bacon fat, stir in crumbled bacon at the end. I use this mixture in my stuffed cabbage and stuffed peppers. Delicious."
