Anyway, I still think it's too much trouble if you're just going to make some for dinner. Your method would be fine for a restaurant serving gallons of it and it needs to be hot on the plate at different times throughout the night, but if you're having it for dinner, might as well finish those last 2 minutes.

Yes, I guess i made a mistake. I meant sauce, not paste. And if you make it for diner, you can just undercook by couple minutes and rince under cold water really well and then throw in the frying pan. Also the reall mexican rice is done in frying pan and first fried in oil dried and then you add some chicken soup and so on and so forth. Not really sure. Toi me it is just easier my way (well the place my mom worked at). It is not the right way but it's just super simple.

You are what you eat.

You're so welcome letscook....now you have "Spanish Rice".
I've never seen Restaurant Mexican Rice have any veggies in it, like Jules said ......

Not to say that "Spanish Rice" isn't a very good thing.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.
