    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    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 :)

      I followed the recipe . . used long grain rice (probably should have used the parboil), didn't add jalapeno, and used chicken stock . .

      As for the pace, use 1/2 hot and 1/2 medium.

      It was nice spicy flavor, and enjoyed by all.

      My DH is a Spanish Rice lover. I have tried many recipes and this is the one. DH thought it was a little spicy. I do not usually care for Spanish rice. This was the best one I have made so far. I will decrease the chili powder next time.

      This was awesome! At first after 35 minutes it still looked too "juicy" but after a few stirs it thickened right up. I used a whole can of corn, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It's a lot of work for rice, but it's most definitely worth it! Thanks for sharing this!
