This is how we Mexicans from California make our rice. We call it Spanish rice, not mexican rice! I didn't hear the term "mexican rice" until I moved to the midwest. This is how all of my family make the rice, aunts and grandmother alike. We don't put in peas or carrots like I have seen from other recipes. I was told by my sons girlfriend that I make it just like the restaurants. I hope that was a compliment!!
This was amazingly delicious! Love it so much, tastes just like Spanish rice. One of the greatest ideas ever, whoever came up with this "replacing rice with cauliflower" thing. :) (Picture by me, linked to original recipe)
