ZATARAIN'S® Family Size Yellow Rice Mix

Yellow rice, or arroz amarillo in Spanish, is a culinary staple in nearly every Latin American culture. It is commonly served as a simple side dish or, more famously, simmered with chicken and other ingredients to create arroz con pollo.

This savory side dish boasts an exciting blend of flavors that includes turmeric, onion and red pepper. Zatarain’s Family Size Yellow Rice is simple to prepare, cooks to fluffy perfection every time, and presents a beautiful complement to a range of meats and vegetables. Try it with chicken and asparagus or pork chops and green beans. Yellow Rice will be your new favorite trick for quick weeknight meals. Family Size means six servings per box – 50% more than regular size boxes.

“40% Sodium so the taste of the dish is extremely salty. It overshadows any of its qualities or dishes it is paired with. Zatarains should improve their Yellow Rice side dish. ”
