When you own a restaurant, you do daily specials. That is just what you do. Once a week, at my restaurant, we made Mexican food, and every time we made it, I would make a large container of this Spanish rice recipe. Recently, I was asked to bring something to a party, and they requested Spanish rice. I dug up the restaurant’s old recipe, and I cut it in half because I was only feeding a few people vs. 100. The recipe is easy to make and tastes fantastic. It brought back tons of memories of working in the restaurant business. I hope you enjoy this recipe for Spanish rice.
