Recipe Corner: Spanish Rice

spanishrice

We love us some Mexican food in our house. We usually make tacos or enchiladas once a week or so because they’re so easy, filling and relatively healthy (we use beans instead of meat).

Of course, we like to have Spanish  rice with them, but I got to the point where I didn’t like many of the packaged versions. They just didn’t turn out right. So, we decided to try to make it on our own. And, boy, is our version FANTASTIC! It’s super easy to make (think as easy as making instant rice), and so yummy and spicy.

First, boil 1 cup of water. Then, add 1 cup salsa and 1 cup rice.

Leave on heat for about three minutes, then stir, cover and take off burner. Let rice sit as you would if you were making instant rice. The end result? Yummy, spicy rice!

One cup makes a TON of rice. My husband and I usually can’t finish a pot between the two of us. It’s really good reheated the next day, though!

Ingredients:
1 cup water
1 cup salsa
1 cup rice

Directions:
Boil water, then add salsa and rice. Leave on heat for three minutes, then remove and let sit as you would instant rice.

    Do you use instant rice or regular rice? I used regular and it didn’t cook right. Was hard after I had thickened up. Taste was great though

    Do you think Picante sauce would work instead of salsa? We didn’t have any in the house but we have picante
