Elena’s Yellow Rice

Elena’s Yellow Rice This is my husband’s favorite rice. It took me awhile to finally come up with this version. One can add chicken, tuna, ham, etc., to make it a one dish meal. It is also great for rice patties. The vinegar is traditional in rice in Spain; it keeps the rice fluffy.
