Linnie's Spanish Rice Recipe
The best and easiest Spanish rice!
I've made this twice now, once as instructed, and once via microwave. Following the instructions exactly was great, but just be aware that this is not a dry spanish rice. It's going to be a wet rice mixture when you're done (which is how I like it). If you don't want it so wet, use less salsa. Regarding the microwave, my typical white rice recipe is to microwave for fifteen minutes covered, and let the rice sit in the microwave (don't open the door) for ten minutes after the timer goes off. Using this timing with the spanish rice recipe left me with rice that was about 95% done. I might have to play with the microwave times a little bit to get it perfect.
This recipe was really easy to make, but I think I cooked it for more like 30 minutes to get the consistency I wanted. Even though I used mild salsa, it was still a little to spicy for us, so I might experiment with a different brand or half tomato sauce/ half salsa next time. We'll definitely make this again!
Spanish rice is the perfect accompaniment to Mexican foods, chicken, or just about anything. This simple recipe uses chicken broth and chunky salsa to transform plain white rice into a marvelous side dish.
I was skeptical because it was so simple but it turned out great! I added some black beans and served with chicken enchiladas and my guests said it was the best meal that they have had in a long time. I will definaltely be making this again and again. Quick, Easy and Delicious. Thanks!
