uncooked white rice
1 (16 ounce) jar
As per other reviewers, I sauteed the rice and garlic in a little butter. I also substituted chicken broth for the water and only added 3/4 of the jar of salsa. Turned out perfect! The whole family loved it!!! I did simmer covered, wasn't sure since it didn't say. I love simple recipes with so few ingredients that taste so flavorful! Will definitely make this again!!!!!!!
Good idea for a quick side dish but I agree with the last reviewer who said this had way to much salsa for 1 cup of rice. I suggest using 1/2 or 3/4 jar of salsa at most for each cup of uncooked rice. I may try again this way.
I was skeptical because it was so simple but it turned out great! I added some black beans and served with chicken enchiladas and my guests said it was the best meal that they have had in a long time. I will definaltely be making this again and again. Quick, Easy and Delicious. Thanks!
Each time I've made this recipe (several times), I bless the cook that sent it in! It so easy, delicious, and always moist. My family loves it! I serve it with tacos or Mexican chicken. A great recipe!
Super easy & good! browned the rice like the others suggestion - made with La Victoria's thick & chunky medium salsa. Very tasty. I didn't cover it 'cause it didn't specify. Turned out great.
Very bummed...I can never seem to get the right spanish rice recipe. This one seemed so easy and had great reviews, but I wasn't impressed. Way too much salsa; I used homemade which had the same consistency as the Pace brand, but it was too much. Maybe if I had used half or three quarters it would have been better.
This recipe was tasty and very simple. I used a garlic lime salsa and it had great flavor. I would make sure you use a salsa that has good flavor or your rice will be bland.
This was so simple and so good. I used Uncle Ben's rice in the microwave - no need for water and then added the salsa. I also added some sauteed chopped green pepper and onion along with some chili powder and cumin to give it a little something more.
