Elena's Yellow Rice

Mariposa

"This is my husband's favorite rice. It took me awhile to finally come up with this version. One can add chicken, tuna, ham, etc., to make it a one dish meal. It is also great for rice patties. The vinegar is traditional in rice in Spain; it keeps the rice fluffy."

The combination of turmeric and apple cider vinegar made this very sour and bitter. I added shredded monterey jack which helped a little, but I wouldn't make this again.
