Mexican White Rice Recipe

My wife and I have been trying to duplicate the white rice recipe served at Wahoo’s and Baja Fish Tacos, for years.  We finally came up with the perfect recipe to taste just like the original white rice in the Baja Fish Taco, or Wahoos, tradition.  Let us know what you think.
