  1. Until I started reading this blog, I never knew you could cook rice in the slow cooker. Now I love it!

  2. Thanks Lydia. I'll never give up my beloved rice cooker for plain rice, but I love the slow cooker for flavored rice dishes!

  3. It would have been helpful if there had been amounts and cooking time also posted.

  4. Ross, this site features "from-scratch" slow cooker recipes from sites all around the web. There is a link to click to the original site, where you can get the complete recipe.

  5. I am looking to make a spanish rice for a taco themed goodie day at work. I'd probably want to double this recipe. How much more do you think it would need to cook? I will only have 3 hours at work to let it cook before serving, should I cook it the night before and reheat?

    1. Shayna I would click through and ask the blogger who posted the recipe. That would be the best information.
