      Mix rice, salsa (I like medium heat, but go with your family's preference) and water in small saucepan.
    2. 2
      Bring to a boil, cover with lid and reduce heat to low.
    3. 3
      Simmer, stirring every 5-7 minutes until rice is tender, about 20-25 minutes.

      This has been a favorite for us for a while now; who knew replacing those awful salty box mixes would be so easy? I highly recommend doubling the recipe if you are serving your family; my DH and I alone can go through the amount this recipe makes. Also, I typically add a little bit of cumin, garlic powder, and chili powder to add a tiny bit more kick.

      I make this all the time as a side dish for Mexican type foods. I've used it IN burritos as well. It serves 4-6 as a side dish. Make sure to use a chunky salsa not an esp thin one to prevent excess liquid. This can be made in a crock pot. If you have a large family it's easy to double. If you do make this in the rice cooker make sure to use a US measuring cup for your rice and water and not the cup that comes with your rice cooker (it's not a standard cup). Thanks Mom!

      This is great! I cooked my rice a bit longer than the recipe called for to get rid of some excess liquid. I definitely recommend using salsa with a low salt content for this dish. Thanks for sharing!
