    Recommend a Spanish/Mexican boxed rice?

    Trader Joe's has nationwide discontinued the orange box of Mexican/Spanish
    (I forget which) rice. I called my BUM!!! in Kalifornia for help but he
    verified no availability. Oh well! It wasn't instant but it was all natural
    and delicious.

    Is there an equal quality brand (imho) somewhere in the USA? Where? Online?

    Goya is pretty good, or Near East.

    Come on. I'd bet my tailfeathers you could do better on your own than
    some boxed stuff.

    Don't need the box use Knorr powdered chicken broth with tomato as the
    seasoning "water" for the rice. Got a pack of frozen peas & carrots - throw
    in a tablespoon or 2.

    Dimitri,

    That'll be worth a try. I only wonder about Knorr's sodium content
    because of the high blood pressure in me.

    For the rice, I'll use Trader Joe's frozen organic brown rice. Microwave
    ready in three minutes. I shortcut where I can. <g>

    Thanks!

    Best,

    Andy

    To each cup of rice one packet of Goya Sazon is as Spanish/Mexican is
    it gets.

    Goya products are almost always reliable. My former boss gave me what
    was left ofsome stuff that came in a plastic/cellophane packet (the
    label was missing). That was great. I wish I knew. She got it as a
    gift and can't remember the name. I like Rice a Roni's "Spanish" and
    "Mexican Style" rice mixes. Scratch is fun - without a recipe> It
    comes out different every time!
