First we brown the rice in a little (lot) of butter :) It starts to smell wonderfully nutty!
These are some of the ingredients for Spanish Rice. I tripled the recipe. I am not sure how many 8x8 pans it will make, but we will soon find out! :)
My onions from the freezer :) An ounce of preparedness is worth a pound of "Hon, I need you to run to the store QUICK!!" :)
I seasoned ground pork (or you can use bacon or sausage) and cooked it. Then I added back the onions and rice, added all the rest of the ingredients except the cheese. I then moved that pot to the back burner to simmer while I started browning the next batch of ground pork for the lumpia :)
