Spanish Rice Casserole

My Mother made the best Spanish Rice and growing up it was one of my favorites. When I went out on my own and married I began to make my Mothers Spanish Rice and I just kept adding to it, so today it has become Spanish Rice Casserole. I still love this casserole it is so full of flavor and it freezes for up to 3 months. This casserole is still one of my favorites and sure hope that you enjoy it.
