We usually have a rice or potato dish with most of our more formal meals, and this is a great side to serve with any number of entrees. I could see easily making this into a main dish by adding some chicken or beef. It's a nice and simple dish to prepare, and I definitely want to make this up soon. It's much better than any of the packaged Spanish rices I've found.
