I made this rice with Spicy Garlic Shrimp for dinner tonight and my husband told me he loved me. I guess it's true, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach! The garlic shrimp will post tomorrow but this rice would also be great with Crock Pot Sante Fe Chicken, Chicken Taco Chili or Garlic Lime Marinated Pork Chops to name a few.
