This was very easy and very delicious. I also made "Salsa Chicken" (#27475), sliced it, and fanned it over the top. Tonight with the leftovers I will make burritos. I'll bet there's a delicious soup waiting to happen in there too. Oh, how I love meals that turn into other meals. I will use this recipe from now on, thanks for posting!

This was a fantastic rice recipe!! I didn't have stewed tomatoes on hand - so I used diced and it worked out great. I increased the chicken broth by 1/4 cup - to make up for the stewed tomatoes. My rice was cooked in 20 minutes. I tossed it with the grated cheddar cheese and placed it on a platter and sprinkled it with the green onions. WONDERFUL!!! Thanks for posting!!

I sauted some green onions in the butter and then browned the rice some before I added the other ingredients. I used diced tomatoes with green chilies and cut the chili powder to 1 tsp. I also used a little less cumin and oregano than the recipe called for. But all in all, a very easy and tasty recipe for Spanish rice.

Yummy! Much better than the boxed "Spainish Rice" you buy in the store. The chunks of tomato might not settle well with those who aren't huge tomato fans.

Very tasty and easy! I also added cumin as well as a small can of diced green chiles. The water had cooked away after 25 minutes but the rice was still a bit crunchy and underdone so I stirred in a half cup water and cooked for another 10 minutes. Maybe my heat was too high. Still, an excellent and easy recipe for a yummy side dish! Thank you for posting!

So good and so easy! My husband loved it also. From now on, I'm never making spanish rice out of a box. I added a teaspoon of cumin.

This was great! I found that the rice cooked perfectly as directed (I used basmati rice). It was both quick and easy to prepare. I did up the seasoning just slightly, and added some chopped jalapeno to the rice for an added kick (it didn't turn out too spicy, but just right!) I would definitely make this again! Thanks for a great recipe!

Thank you for giving my husband the "best rice he's ever tasted!" I used tomatoes with green chiles added and it came out great. Again thank you.

December 17, 2007: Fabulous recipe. I blended the tomatoes as suggested and followed the recipe as written otherwise. I gave a big scoop of this to my Dad who always skips the Spanish rice and he ate the entire thing, raving about how good it was the entire time. Even the babies loved this rice as it is not hugely spicy. Easy and delicious means this recipe will become a regular in our family! November 8, 2010: I have tried other Quick Spanish Rice recipes but NONE as good as this one and it continues to be my "go to" recipe for Spanish Rice. I now start with 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of oil and saute the rice first which
keeps the grains separate and prevents the rice from sticking to the pan. Then add the rest of the ingredients and follow the directions. Try this rice.... you'll love it!
