New Mexico Spanish Rice

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Darkhunter

This is a recipe from our Sunday supplement American Profile. It is one of the best Spanish rice recipes we've ever had. It freezes well. Just needs a little liquid when heating up.

This is a great side dish! We had it with plank grilled salmon, and it was perfect. I only had a red bell pepper, so ours was more monochromatic than it would have been. But, I only had Rotel crushed tomatoes, so we got some flecks of green along with a little rise in temperature. All in all it was delicious. I'm glad it freezes well, because there are only the two of us. We look forward to enjoying it again and again. Thanks AuntSana!
