What’s Cooking Wednesday: Spanish Rice

One of our favorite nights is taco night. We usually make tacos once a week or so because they’re so easy, filling and relatively healthy (we use beans instead of meat).

Obviously, we like to have rice with them, but I got to the point where I didn’t like some of the packaged versions of Spanish rice. 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. For ingredienst find the deals from weekly ads.
