    Super easy recipe for Spanish rice is just t mix cooked rice and salsa or picante sauce and heat.

  2. Maggie says

    Is there any chance that the recipe should say 1 cup of rice, Uncooked? I tried mixing together the 1 cup of rice, cooked, as stated in the recipe (and the other ingredients) and it was very thin and soupy. Did I do something wrong? Thanks!

      Did you use tomato soup? That may have made a difference. You might try adding less water or use tomato paste instead of sauce if you keep having problems. We just made it with the way the recipe says and it worked ok so am not sure what else could be wrong? Wish I could be more help? Holler if you have another question.

    I like to use one cup of rice/two cups of water to make my Spanish rice.
    Add a package of taco seasoning, and a can of HOT, spicy chopped tomatoes. I do mine in the microwave in a covered class bowl. Comes out nice and tender. You can add chopped, cooked ground beef with some onion in it and make it a meal! Throw in some chopped fresh cilantro and enjoy!

      Your recipe sounds delicious and I plan to try it. How long do you microwave it for? Thanks!
