Spanish Rice With Ham

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by lazyme

This is a quick side dish to serve with Mexican entrees. We like spicy, so I usually add some spices to kick it up a notch, but it's good as is. It also freezes well.

This was excellent! Cooked it for the guys who were helping with plumbing on my house and they all loved it. I added one sliced sweet onion, I served it with slices of french bread. I agree with Kittencal that it could do with a couple cloves of garlic. I will do this again.
