I have a whole pan of leftover Spanish rice. It is just plain red rice with no veggies or anything in it. My husband doesn't like rice in his burritos so I need ideas how to use up the rice. Gluten free if possible would be great since my son is GI. Thank you.

This cold rice pudding is cooked on the stove, enriched with eggs and vanilla, then refrigerated overnight before serving.

Roasted green bell peppers are stuffed with feta cheese and a mixture of rice and green onions.

This is yummy. I've added goat cheese in place of feta and it was yummy.

Italian-inspired rice balls made with lean ground beef are rolled in crumbs and baked, not fried. They are flavored with Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, and served with prepared pasta sauce.

Flavorful beef and pork meatballs simmer in a spicy tomato broth in this authentic Mexican dish. Serve with warm tortillas and a salad to make this a complete meal.

I have a Mexican Lasagna recipe - basically flour tortilla base layer, taco seasoned meat layer, layer with tortilla - layer rice maybe cheddar cheese to taste, layer frijoles (refried beans, I always add canned tomatoes with chili to beans about 2 part bean to 1 part tomatoes) repeat - till near top - last tortilla layer with salsa - bake - add cheese at end with maybe 5 minutes to melt cheese

My husband eats rice but I don't. I just store it in the freezer in small portions to add to his meat loaf, patties, etc. You can always freeze and use later.

Thanks everyone. I ended up making beef enchiladas with the rice layered in instead of tortillas. It turned out good. I still have more rice so will freeze it and try some of the recipes suggestioned later.

MichiGirl, that's a great idea. We usually have Spanish Rice as a main course (with ground beef, tortillas, refried beans, and a salad garnish) ... but I'm blessed with a hubby that loves leftovers.
