One cook's "Spanish" rice is another's "Mexican." Whatever the name, the result is more or less the same: an orange pilaf-style rice flavored with onion and garlic and flecked with carrot. Tomato paste further tints this colorful companion to all things Tex-Mex.

    The blandest "spanish Rice" I ever had! It is fine as a side dish for your basic American home-style dinner, but, it isn't Spanish OR Mexican (which are not the same dish, despite the claim that one cook's Spanish rice is another's Mexican" this is closer to Spanish than Mexican, but, it is neither. If I was served something like this at a Mexican restaurant, I' wouldn't be back.

    I made this rice recipe as a side dish for enchiladas and it was a great match. If you were eating the rice with something less flavorful, I can see where the rice might be a little lackluster, but this was a win for me.

    Far from tasteless! You just have to use chicken stock instead of water. My husband and I both loved this and it tasted as good as the rice we have at our favorite Mexican restaurant. I will definitely be making this again and again. So easy and so delicious.

    Made this tonight to go along with Martha's Tortilla Pie (also on this site - and just fabulous) and it was an ideal accompaniment. Well-seasoned and tasty but mild enough to go along with a spicier main dish - we'll have it again for sure.

    My family LOVES this recipe!! I serve it with made from scratch beef-and-bean burritos and they can't get enough. I end up making it almost once a week, it'd be more if the boys had their way.
