“I randomly got hold of a cheap bag of “taco seasoning” from the dollar store and fell in love with the stuff. I went back and bought three more bags. I’d swear it’s got a bit of saffron or some other Eastern spice in it*.

Anyway, just a half-teaspoon of that stuff in a big pot of rice makes it come alive. Whatever else I add in is just a bonus.

So don’t be afraid to experiment. It’s hard to mess up rice. Sometimes, I’ve tossed in a dash of something sweet, like a bit of the juice from a can of peaches. It can add some zip.”

Works super well with garlic, too.”
