here's our new favorite rice around here. i obtained this recipe from a friend this summer who told me about it over a year ago and i was suddenly needing the recipe. i was drooling for this rice i'd never had.
and it was totally drool-worthy.
a perfect side dish for any mexican meal, your family will gobble this one down! and of course, yours truly lightened it up a bit by cutting the butter in half. it doesn't need the extra. it's perfect with less.
