I've tried about 15 or 20 different Spanish rice recipes over the years as its one of my favorite sides to accompany Mexican and Spanish cuisine. Some have been better than others, but nearly all have fallen short. I didn't think this one would be any good because there are so few ingredients, but decided to try it since I was cooking for a picky eater who likes food with fewer, simpler ingredients. Success!!! I will never, ever use another recipe again. I've made it several times since and it has never let me down. I cook from scratch, however because of food allergies in my household, so instead of using store bought salsa, I mix a can of organic tomatoes (or a few fresh that are quartered), a quarter cup of loosely chopped onion, with a good bunch of chopped cilantro, salt, garlic clove, a few slices of pickled jalepeno, and some pickled jalepeno juice, pulse a few times in a food processor, and use that, with the extra saved for the main meal. I usually add a bit of cumin to the rice and some fresh chopped cilantro after its cooked.
