Simple Spanish Rice

Simple Spanish Rice

My son made this for his Spanish class and the kids loved it. It’s simple and quick. It takes only about five minutes to prepare and 25 minutes to cook. Add grilled chicken to the rice, and you have an easy meal in 30 minutes.

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Chopped Onion
2 cups rice
3 gloves minced garlic
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 cup plain tomato sauce
1 can plain diced tomoatoes with liquid
4 Tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro/coriander

Put oil, garlic and onion in a pan and saute until onion is starting to get soft. Add rice and saute for a few minutes. Add chicken broth, tomato sauce, and diced canned tomatoes with liquid. Mix and cover. Bring to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed and the rice is soft. Sprinkle chopped cliantro on top and serve. Add salt and pepper to taste, if needed. Serves 6.

Variation: Mix in chopped, and already grilled chicken or shrimp after rice is cooked, and heat through.
