Best Spanish rice
This is an extremely easy and delicious recipe for Spanish rice. We make it all the time. It's fantastic! On nights when I want to go meatless, I have served this rice as the main dish with a bunch of veggies on the side. The recipe came from Lizzy Writes.
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 small onion, diced
1 1/2 c. uncooked long-grain white rice*
2 c. chicken broth
1 c. salsa (I used mild Pace Picante)
In a pot over medium-high heat, cook onion in oil for a couple of minutes. Add rice and cook until it starts to brown, stirring frequently. Stir in chicken broth and salsa. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 25 minutes, or until rice is tender. No need to check until the end. Stir and serve.
*Obviously this would be healthier with brown rice, but it would require some important adjustments, and I haven't taken the time to make them. Let me know if you give it a whirl.
**If you want this recipe to be gluten-free, then be sure to check your chicken broth.
