Ok, this is Spanish rice, but we're in Texas and it's what is served with TexMex food. I learned from a friend that if you grind the garlic, jalapeno and cumin seed you get a flavor that can't be beat. I got a "molcajete" for Christmas and I have to agree! The molcajete is just a large mortar & pestle so you can grind larger amounts. —nannydeb
fresh jalapeno or serrano pepper (or more to suite your taste)
Former restaurant manager (and waitress, bartender, etc). I love food: eating, trying new recipes, shopping for it, talking/emailing about it, etc. My foodie friend and pen pal got me interested in recipe contests and also turned me on to food52 and now I'm obsessed!
