Rice Cooker Spanish Rice

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"This is a great, easy way to make a delicious side dish when cooking Mexican for dinner. My kids really love it, too. Substitutions for spices and vegetables are fine -- add the tastes that your family likes most. You can make this on the stovetop in a skillet with a lid, as well. Bring all ingredients to a boil and stir well; cover and simmer for 25 minutes or until rice is soft. If you add some of the optional ingredients, this can be an excellent main dish. Try adding chopped green chile peppers. Tastes great with the Enchilada II recipe."

Easy and delicious. I put all the ingredients into my rice cooker before leaving for work and came home to the wonderful aroma. Will definitely make this again.

This was excellent! The recipe submitter notes this can be done in a skillet on a stove and this is what I did since I do not have a rice cooker. I somehow let myself run out of rice so I used a...
