Leftover Rice Made Into Spanish Rice

Leftover Rice Made Into Spanish Rice created by Outta Here

If last night's stir fry resulted in leftover steamed rice, one thing you can do with it is turn it into Spanish rice. This is just about as good as Spanish rice made the traditional way.

    I made this with some left over rice that I had after making a bunch of rice water. It was EXCELLENT! I added some chopped green bell pepper and sautéed it with the onion, and I used cumin instead of coriander (just a personal preference). I will definitely make this again! Superb!

    I skipped the water, and used a can of rotel tomatoes in its place. Not restaurant quality (I do not know anyone who can do that at home) but better than the box mixes, it is my new go-to rice recipe!
