What a great idea! Making great tasting Spanish or Mexican rice from scratch is sometimes tricky. Although I scoffed (canned tomato sauce??), the end result was very tasty and easy, and pleased even a foodie like me. I used ground cumin instead of coriander, and added a few diced carrots to saute with the onions, plus a sprinkling of some frozen corn in the last few minutes.

Great idea! Had leftover Chinese rice. I sautéed some red and yellow mini peppers, a small Serrano pepper and leftover corn kernels with the onion. I also added garlic powder, chili powder and paprika with a little sauce because I used "no salt added" tomato sauce. Delish!
