Adapted from Sandra Lee on Food Network. It is the best Spanish rice I ever tasted.
- 2 cups instant rice
- 2 cups water
- 3 tablespoons taco seasoning
- 1 (7 ounce) can rotel
- 1 (6 ounce) can tomato sauce
- Boil water with the taco seasoning and tomato sauce. Add rice; cover and let sit 5 min, or till set.
- Add Rotel (I don't boil Rotel, as it gets too hot).
This was so simple and really delish. Wouldn't change a thing. Thanks StarterWife for a great side dish for enchiladas. Made for All You Can Cook Buffet tag.
this worked out really well! i mixed everything up in a large bowl and microwaved it! i think next time i'll add some veggies! thanks for posting, this recipe is easy and very tasty!
I used canned diced tomatoes with chiles instead of rotel and a can of sloppy joe sauce instead of regular tomato sauce. (It was what I had on hand) This was absolutely hands down the easiest and best tasting spanish rice I have ever made! I had 12 kids over for taco supper, and doubled the recipe as a side. Every last grain of rice was gone, and they were looking for more! Thank you for this recipe!!
