When I have something at a restaurant that I really love, I come home and try to recreate it. Sometimes this is a big success, other times, not so much. One thing that I have mastered is Mexican rice in the style that you see at many restaurants. My friends at Pompeian Oil sent me some of their Grapeseed Oil Spray to try out in a recipe and share my thoughts with you! So I am excited to share this Mexican Rice – Restarante Style with you!
First some notes about the Pomepeian Grapeseed Oil Spray - it is amazing! I love grapeseed oil in general as it is a healthy oil to cook with – add to that fact, that it has a higher smoke point, making it wonderful for frying things (without adding a weird after taste!) and you have a winner! The Pompeian Grapeseed Oil Spray is high quality, sprays beautifully from the container (no bubbling, clogging or sputter spraying encountered – I love this unique bottle design!). I have used this for everything from my waffle iron to browning chicken – it is perfect! I know that I will be using this oil at every chance I get as it cooks so well and really keeps things from sticking, too!
Now on to the recipe!
