  • Delicious, and company liked it. :) Just lacked that "zing" to take it to the "Incredible!" level. I'll have to figure out what it's missing and adjust next time. Maybe capers?... Still, it was very easy and tasty, too! - 4/3/10

  • This rice is so perfectly delicious! This was my first time ever making spanish rice from scratch. I was looking for a recipe because all of the pre-packaged were so gross. This is my new stand-by. I will make it many times in the future! Thanks Tiina! - 3/10/09
