Spanish Rice with a Texas Swing

My family and I really love this Spanish rice recipe. It is actually adapted from a recipe book that my Mom has and has had forever. It’s old red and white gingham looking Better Homes and Garden recipe book. 

This recipe is fantastic and super easy to put together and delicious. It’s not exactly the same as Better Homes and Garden recipe but it’s even better!
