Amazingly Flavorful and Easy Spanish Rice

My daughter found this fantastic recipe recently and asked me to make it for dinner.  I fell in love with how super easy, moist and incredibly flavorful it is, and proclaimed "I gotta post this!"

One of my adaptations is toasting the spices a little along with the rice before adding the liquids, making this fabulous rice even more flavorsome!  It's a real family pleaser and would go well with so many entrees.  We enjoyed it that night with fajitas.

                                                   It's Sooo Good...
                                       May I Have Some More, Please!

As adapted from the recipe for Easy Mexican Rice by

Serves approx. 4-6

  • 2 TB vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 c. uncooked premium long-grain white rice
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 c. chicken stock or broth
  • 8 oz. can premium tomato sauce (I like Hunts)
  1. Heat the oil in an approx. 2 to 2 1/2 qt. saucepan over medium-low heat.  Add the rice and cook for about 1 min., then add the seasoning and cook about l more min., stirring often throughout this process.
  2. Add the chicken stock or broth and tomato sauce and bring to a rapid boil over medium-high heat.
  3. Cover with a lid and turn the heat to simmer-low, then cook for 25 min.  (Do not remove the lid while cooking.)
  4. Remove the lid and let stand 2-3 min., then fluff with a fork. 
You'll find this amazingly flavorful and easy Spanish rice so delicious, you might just want to make a light meal out of it (well, maybe with a vegetable or salad :)...Enjoy!
