"This Spanish rice-inspired spicy tomato rice recipe is super easy to make and is always a crowd-pleaser. When was the last time you had Spanish rice? You can substitute paprika for the chili powder."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I just made this recipe today for Mothers DAY! My hubby is housebound after hip surgery, so instead of the kids having us over, I decided to do a Spanish meal instead of the traditional BBQ. I did the deep fried tacos and this Spanish rice dish! OH BOY,,,, was it good! I doubled it for the servings that was needed. I had a very large cast Iron skillet that I started it in but of course I ended up transferring it into another pot for it to finish cooking. I only added a couple things different. But, that did not change the taste at all. It would have been fine without them. I added only 1 can of drained black beans, and 1 can of chopped tomatoes. Well, after taste testing I decided that it did need some cayenne pepper which I did not think it needed until I taste tested (thought the jalopenias would to the trick) so I decided to add a pinch and------ more then I wanted went in and wha laaaa,,,, it was the perfect heat to it! My kids all took the leftovers except one bowl left for us. I would recommend this one to try! Thank you Chef John!
I made this tonight with very few changes or substitutions. We loved it! Thanks Chef John!
Awesome!!! Made it earlier today and the family devoured it.
This may not be authentic but it is the closest I've ever made. I made it exactly as written except used 1 1/2 teaspoons of chili powder because I don't have chipotle chile powder. I didn't think there was going to be enough liquid but there was and it was perfect to get that sticky but not too sticky spanish-"style" rice consistency. Very good!
I will preface this by saying that Himself(my DH) absolutely hates rice. At the end of the meal his plate looked as if he had licked it clean. He said he would eat that kind of rice any day. YAY! I was leary of the amount of jalapeno and hot peppers as he is not wild about too much heat but it turned just right for us. I followed the recipe exactly except for omitting the chipotle chili powder as I didn't have it on hand. Also, I have never been able to make rice properly but this came out perfect by following the directions on timing exactly. I will be making this many times again in the future. THANK YOU Chef John!!!
I made this as directed, and it was delicious. The only problem I had was that I had to add a lot more broth while it was simmering, because it was very dry and started to stick to the bottom of the pot. I'm sure it would have burned if I didn't add the extra broth. Very spicy, but I like spicy food. The recipe makes a lot, so if you don't need a lot of rice, I would cut the recipe in half. I'll definitely make this again!
excellent flavor, the right amount of seasonings, and cooked up perfectly.
Delicious and spicy! I added some diced tomatoes... So good and easy to make!
