Texas Rice – customer shared recipe

I really like this rice as side with grilled chicken or fajitas. It is so simple and flavorful! It is also great as leftovers or reheated. I have added diced chicken and shredded cheese wrapped in lettuce for a Tex-Mex lettuce wrap lunch. You can also make this recipe even easier with a rice maker. Just add the ingredients and set for the type of rice you are using.  Thank you to our customer friend Amy for sharing!
