This is a super simple Spanish Rice.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 small green bell pepper, chopped (If I don't have it on-hand I omit this)
  • 1 small onion, chopped (I use frozen chopped onions, still frozen)
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen corn, thawed (I never thaw)
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 12 cups instant rice
  • 14 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Heat oil in large pot over medium heat. Add chopped bell pepper and onion. Cook until tender but not browned, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add corn, salsa and chicken broth to the pot. Bring to boil over medium heat, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Stir rice into pot, cover, let stand for 5 minutes.
  4. Add cheddar to pot. Fluff rice and cheese with a fork.
