1/3 Photos of Kittencal's Spanish Rice
Although this only uses one cup of rice this will make enough for four very hearty servings or six smaller, you may double if desired but I suggest to make in a saucepan --- make this as spicy as desired by adjusting the chili flakes and jalapeño pepper --- half a package of taco seasoning mix may be used in place of the cumin and chili powder, converted rice only for this :)
