I watched hispanic friends making spanish rice, when I made it at home I didn't have all the ingredients so I subsituted. Now my hispanic friends always ask me to bring the rice to the fiesta!


  1. heat veg. oil in heavy skillet over high heat.
  2. add jasmine rice and toast for about 5 minutes stirring constantly.
  3. while rice is toasting, add bullion, salsa and about 1/4 cup of the broth in mini food processor until fairly smooth.
  4. add the rest of the chicken broth and enough water to the salsa mixture to make 3 cups liquid.
  5. pour liquid mixture into skillet with the toasted rice, it should boil immediately. Drop temperature to low, cover and steam until rice is tender, about 20-25 minutes. You can stir once or twice during steaming.
