McAllen resident Claudia Carranza is sharing her favorite recipe for No-Fuss Mexican Rice with other hometown cooks at Just a Pinch Recipe Club, the new online recipe community created for and by cooks in hometown America.

Carranza has taken a traditional meal-time staple and added her own unique twist.

“Taking the traditional flavors from my Mexican-American grandmother, and the vegetable-hiding craftiness of my Colombian mother, I’ve reworked this family favorite to incorporate new cooking techniques I’ve learned,” says Carranza. “This is wonderful with any Mexican-American dish.”

Carranza’s rice recipe can be viewed at Just A Pinch Recipe Club members can view and rate thousands of recipes from around the country, swap and chat about recipes, build menus, access grocery lists and get coupons for recipe ingredients and other items.
