This recipie was great! I made it for a Taco Dinner Fundraiser that we held. People were just raving about how great the rice was. I quadrupled the recipie. We ended up serving 250 people and just had enough rice. I used less oil only 1/2 cup per full recipie. I also used 1/2 cup of fresh chopped onion instead of the dehydrated. Tip for not getting sticky rice. Rinse your rice in a colander under cold water and drain it well. It prevents the rice from sticking.

I made this recipe about a year for 100 people. It was so good, it is still remembered today - and not by me but by folks that were at the potluck.

This rice turned out mushy. There wasn't enough liquid. The flavor, however, was wonderful. I will add water or more beef stock next time. Shame all that rice was mushy because I had to add water in the middle.

For my son's Confirmation Party, we had a taco bar. I searched for a Spanish Rice recipe for a large group. Came upon this recipe. It was awesome!!!! Made a double batch. EVERYONE loved it!

I made 2 changes. I used 1/2 cup of OLIVE oil for sauteeing. I added more sugar, as I like a sweeter rice.

Note: I used 2 SMALL cans of beef broth. Recipe didn't state size.

Thanks for the recipe!

I made this recipe for my sons graduation party. It was a big hit and every bit of it got eaten. I only wish that you could scale the recipe to something that is easily understood. Delisous!!!!!
