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.

Ingredients Nutrition


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