Great Spanish rice as a main course meal. I usually serve it with mashed potatoes. Can be made less spicy using regular tomatoes.

I don't want to give something 5 stars unless it is truly exceptional so 4 stars still means it was excellent and I'd make it again. I didn't make it exactly the way the recipe called for though. Someone else said the Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies was too hot so I just used a can of regular diced tomatoes (I'm not a fan of hot spices). I also used 2 Cups of Basmati rice instead of one because 1 cup didn't sound like it would be enough and of course I added at least 2 extra cups of water in order to hydrate the extra cup of rice that I used. The original recipe seemed like it would be a little bland without many spices so I added 1 tsp cumin 2 teaspoons Oregano 2 teaspoons salt 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper 1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes 1 teaspoon paprika 1 small can of sliced black olives chopped and a handful of green olives chopped. Remember I used 2 Cups of rice instead of one so these amounts of spices might be a little too much if just one cup of rice is used.

Wish that I had seen Koolchick's warning Had never used Rotel tomatoes with green chilis before and the result was very hot (spicey).. Next time I will use plain tomatoes.

I used a vine ripe tomato and a jalapeño instead of Rotel. I put them in with the green pepper and onion. I also added minced garlic and garlic pepper from the McCormick grinder.
