Feisty Fiesta Rice

Making homemade Spanish, or  Mexican Rice,  is super easy and the taste, texture, and ingredients far exceed anything you’ll find in a box. Spanish rice and Mexican rice are basically used interchangeably here in the states. Both restaurants and home cooks have put their unique twists on this recipe, and you’ll find there are a few ingredients and cooking tips I use to make this not only delicious, but unique.  The key ingredient is our Feisty Lime seasonings, from my  own Willow Seasonings and Blends.  Check it out, it will not disappoint.
