Very good rice. Tastes exactly like what you find at a Mexican restaurant.

SO GOOD! It really is just like the rice... Scratch that... It’s even better than the rice you find in Mexican restaurants. I’ve tried a few different recipes and this is, by far, the best. What really does the trick for me is to make sure the rice is nice and golden brown before adding the sauce and broth. Also, if you don’t mind a little bit of spice (and it really is “a little bit”), I really recommend using El Pato Hot Tomato Sauce. SO GOOD!

I forgot to add the cilantro at the end and added half a can of tomatoes and green chilies to give it a little more kick. It turned out soo good!! Adding this one to my recipes!

This recipe is great!!! It's easy and usually have all the ingredients on hand. I find myself comparing this recipe against the different Mexican food restaurants we go to and this one wins!
