Authentic Mexican Rice

This rice is amazing.  Better than any Spanish rice you will ever get in a restaurant.  Many of my Hispanic friends are surpised that I know how to make rice that tastes as good as their mamas, and immedietely want to know where I learned to make this rice.  My son, Ryan, especially loves this rice
