I will never make spanish rice on the stove again. This was so yummy! This was right up my families alley they loved it! Even my mom wanted the recipe! I did add some diced green chilies, chichen broth, real onions, and a pinch of salt. Very flavorful and I'm sure a litle healthier since you're not browning the rice with oil first. Great post, thank you!

Easy. It was what we needed. We put in half a green bell pepper. Didn't need extra water.

I like the flavor, but it doesn't work very well with brown rice. It only cooked halfway (in my Black & Decker). I did use 1/2 C salsa and added another cup of water. We also don't like spicy hot, so I reduced the chili powder to 1'ish tsp and left out the chilies and green pepper. DH still liked it and said it wasn't too crunchy. We had with chorizo, but found the chorizo too spicy!
