I really, really like easy peazy recipes so when I went looking for a Spanish Rice Recipe to serve with tacos and pinto beans and came across this one, I fell in love with it! Since Mr. B's picante is a little on the warm side, it has a bit of a kick but if you stir it up in your beans and add a little grated cheese on the top, it cuts the fire quite a bit!
This week's winner of a signed book has been put on hold since I'm out of pocket most of this week. It's possible I'll be in crazy places that does not have wonderful reception so if I miss a day know that I'll be back in a few days!! Have a wonderful week!
Best Spanish Rice
2 T. cooking oil2 T. chopped onion
1 ½ cups of white rice
2 cups of chicken broth
1 cup of salsa or picante sauce (Of course I use Mr. B’s Picante)
Saute the onion in the oil until it’s tender. This takes about 5 minutes. Add white rice and stir over medium heat until the rice starts to brown. Then add the broth and picante. Stir well, cover and let simmer until all the liquid is gone. I use a heavy cast iron skillet with a heavy matching lid. If you use something lighter you may need more liquid to get the rice really done.
