“This rice not only looks beautiful, but it's bursting with savory flavors, and your house will smell delicious when you cook this! This is a recipe I adapted from Taste Of Home's Holiday Recipes. I made it my own by altering a few ingredients and adding others, but yield amount and cooking time/method are the same. I like to make the rice mix a day or two ahead to let all the flavors meld. This makes 2 batches of rice.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 8 ingredients. You can do this a day or two in advance to allow flavors to meld, but it's not necessary.
  2. Combine water and butter in a saucepan; bring to a boil.
  3. Add 2 cups rice mix, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed.
  4. NOTE: I make this a complete meal by adding cooked chicken thighs. You can store this rice mix in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
