    I made this today to go with Chicken Nacho Bake, a recipe from this site! It was perfect with this! I made this exactly as written. I used low sodium chicken broth, so I had to add extra salt. This was very easy and very tasty! Whenever I make the Chicken Nacho Bake, I'll make this to go with it! Great recipe! I added a photo. :)

    I made this tonight! We give it an A+! I halved the recipe but did everything exactly as written. This will be my new go to mexican rice recipe instead of the package rice. Thanks Missdrea!
