I offered to make the rice for a dinner party for 10-12 my friend is giving next weekend. It is going to be Mexican food, so I thought I would make a Mexican or Spanish rice (as opposed to simple yellow rice). I have never made rice for that many people before. I do not have a rice cooker. How much should I make? How should I make it--should I make it in two batches? Or can I make it in one big pot? I usually make rice on the stove-top, but should I do it in the oven. Any recipes would be great, too. Thanks so much.
