Lauren's Spanish Rice

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by puppitypup

I came up with this dish, but my sister loves it so much that I had to name it for her. Sometimes I saute the rice and vegetables ahead of time to save time at the last minute. I use whole canned tomatoes and don't break them up much, so that my picky hubby can eat around them.

puppitypup, we really enjoyed the rice! It could be paired with any protein. We served at a dinner party for 8, so the rating is from the entire group. One man said he could eat this rice EVERY day! It was very easy, too. Next time I would add a bit more peas, but that's personal preference! I might sub corn for the red pepper, too, just to see. It's versitle. I'm sure there's lots one could try! Thanks, Julie!
