Recipe by ChristyEsp

I love this recipe because in our busy household it is easy and delicious, a really quick sidedish. My husband is Mexican and he says that it is better then his mother's homemade rice, and hers takes hours to make.

Very similar to the one that I always make,....butter, instant rice, couple cloves minced garlic, water and tomato sauce...yummy

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring water to a boil.
  2. Add butter and jar of salsa and bring almost to a boil.
  3. Add rice and remove from heat and let stand covered per instructions on instant rice box.
  4. That's it!
  5. It is super simple and delicious!
  6. You can substitute with mild salsa but it makes it sort of sweet instead of a spicy taste to it.
