Taste Test

Taste test: yellow rice mixes

Whether celebrating Cinco de Mayo on Sunday or just planning a Spanish- themed meal, yellow rice is a must-serve.

We sampled seven brands and cooked all but one on the stovetop. The exception was a microwave-only rice brand. Kathy Saunders, Times correspondent
