    Love this Spanish rice. Used it to stuff bell peppers. Best I've ever had. It will be a staple in my house.

    Zatarain's Spanish Rice is the best, none of the others even come close. I use it with low sodium tomatoes or tomatoes from our garden. Sometimes I add corn and /or ground beef. It makes easy and delicious stuffed peppers. I am also having a difficult time finding it. Our grocery store carried it until recently. It carries other flavors but not Spanish Rice. I've put in a request for them to carry it again but haven't seen it or heard from them. I've checked a couple of other stores but haven't been able to find it.

    LOVE IT! we use rotel (pick your favorite variety) instead of dices tomato and add in steak sliced thin and sauteed. Top with cheese and sour cream.

    My family loves the Spanish Rice. No other brand compares. Yet I cannot find it in the regular places. Where is it currently being sold?

    This product compliments my enchiladas recipe well. But it's hard to find now. Not even the local grocery store or Walmart carries it anymore.

    This is hard to find, but it makes easy Spanish rice. I like to use a 15 ounce can of tomato sauce and top with a little shredded cheddar cheese.

    Used with a can of Rotel diced tomatoes and green chilies and this was a huge hit in the office.

    It's a bit salty, so I use low-sodium diced tomatoes (fire-roasted, if I can find them...). I'll also add a diced fresh jalapeno and maybe a diced serrano chile for heat. Great with black beans and one or two poached eggs! Add a couple of fresh tortillas and it's a good hearty breakfast.

    Spanish rice and the jambalaya have both made me sick. Not sure how many PPM of gluten is in these but I am defiantly having a problem with your products. It was exciting to see easy meals labeled gluten free and then end up begin sick for days after.
