"I make this every time I make tacos or enchiladas. In stead of the canned diced tomatoes with green chillies I use a reg. can of diced tomatoes and a draines can of chopped green chillies for a little more heat, I sometimes add cut up cooked chicken to turn it into a main course meal. This is the best spanish rice recipe i have tried and my family agrees."
