“I invented this recipe to use up a bunch of Spanish Rice I had leftover. Everyone it my home group loved it. The ingredients can all be modified based on personal preference and what you have in your cupboard. Plain rice can be substituted for the Spanish Rice. Quantities are estimates, adjust based on the size of your crock pot.”
