    i used a little less water than recipe called for, used garlic powder instead of garlic salt so i added salt and pepper. it was ahit with my family, but a little too "sticky". might reduce water even more next time and add in some chopped pepper.

    This recipe was super simple, and very very very delicious! I cooked and seasoned according to the recipe except added a chicken bouillon, the rice was tender and flavorful. I will never make another Spanish rice! This one is perfection.

    Very good! I added a little extra oregano and it was delicious. Keep an eye on your rice as I accidentally burned the first batch and had to start over.

    Rice came out so good. I used chicken broth instead of water. My family loved the taste!

    Very good! I did not have tomato sauce so I used a 6oz can of tomato paste and added 2 more ounces of water to it to make it 8oz. I also added Cayenne pepper to it as I like a little heat in my spanish rice. I also added some red and green chopped peppers. My ? is if you brown the rice with the oil how does it turn white again? That seems like it has to be a MISPRINT in the recipe. No way it turns white again and I in no way over browned it. Also It took longer than 15 minutes to cook completely. More like 20-25 minutes. I believe too much water is required in this recipe and I would cut the water next time. BUT I would make this again. I did not believe that with these spices it would taste like real spanish rice but YES it does and it is delicious. Much more tomatoey than it should be but I like it like that.

    This was very easy to make and the taste was very good. I also added some fried Kielbasa with it to make it a meal. My daughter added mozzarella cheese on hers. It was just a great meal for everyone.
