My mom has been making this rice since before I can remember and I still get excited every time I smell it cooking on the stove. It is crazy to me how it can have the same basic ingredients as most Mexican rice dishes, but still be so uniquely hers.
So with her permission, I am sharing this recipe with all of you. Enjoy!
*This recipe makes a lot of rice — about 8 cups — so cut the ingredients in half if you want a smaller portion. I like to make this size batch once a week and spread it out for several meals. Tacos, rice and beans, buddha bowls, rice stew dishes.. the options are endless.
*The turmeric is optional, but it adds a number of health benefits and a beautiful golden hue.. so why not?!
