RECIPE BACKSTORY
I hesitate to call this Spanish. I doubt that it really has anything to do with Spanish cooking, but one day I was hungry for something with lots of flavor and came up with this recipe. It is similar to the rice that you get at the Mexican restaurant chains, but I think this is better. You can cook it in one pot, but I like it when the vegetables have a little crispyness left.
