A really quick, easy way to put together a quick side dish using leftover rice. Good with a little bit of cheese sprinkled over the top!


  1. Combine rice and salsa in a bowl.
  2. Heat in the microwave until everything is heated through (takes longer if rice is cold from the fridge, obviously).
  3. Top with shredded cheese and enjoy!

For a fast and easy Spanish rice this is the one. Next time I might add some sauteed garlic and onions just for our tastes. I used medium hot salsa and I think I will up that next time. (It was a brand I wasn't familiar with so I took the safe side.) Served this with half M-M-M- Good Mexican Rice#318960, Easy Beef Green Chili Burros#410928 and Tangy Guacamole#380918. A delicious meal. Made for SPRING PAC 2010.
