We eat a lot of rice in our house. I started making this dish after watching my mother-in-law make it several times. This Spanish Rice is a staple in her home and one of my husband’s favorites.
This versatile side dish is great with any protein or just vegetables. I like to make a double batch for leftovers that make a quick meal on busy days.
Spanish rice is a great way to use up vegetables. If they are raw, dice them up and add them to the skillet with the rice and onion. If cooked, dice them to add to with the broth.
Depending on what I am serving my Spanish rice with, I will adjust the spices, accordingly. There are no rules and is delicious with just salt and pepper.
Serve your Spanish Rice with our Bistec, tacos or fajitas.
