Spanish Rice Recipe

Spanish Rice Recipe

As previously mentioned, I’m 1/2 Mexican.

Contrary to popular belief, it’s true… even if I’m SUPER WHITE!!

Although I’m pretty darn white, I can still cook some AMAZING Mexican Food, and that’s because I have wonderful teachers like my MOM and AUNTS.

TODAY, I’d like to introduce you to my mudda, Liv.

(and my dad – hence the whiteness)

Ain’t she pretty?

(She’s gonna KILL me for putting a pic of her on here, but oh well)

Today, my mom is going to show us how to make some yummy Spanish Rice. It’s actually the Spanish Rice recipe of a popular Mexican Restaurant in Mesa called Mango’s (down on Main). If you’ve ever been down there and liked their rice, here it is.

  • 6 stems cilantro (optional)
  • 1 tsp. salt
