Zesty Spanish Rice Low Fat

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Notorious L.I.Z.

This is a twist on the regular Spanish rice. I stumbled upon this by accident when I opened a can of "Herdez Salsa Verde Mexicana picante" instead of green chillies. I decided to throw it in and see how it turned out. The rice turned out great. I love the flavor and it's low fat!!

We loved it, too! It was spicy, but that was just right for us. I'll definitely make this again.
