Spanish rice is the perfect accompaniment to Mexican foods, chicken, or just about anything! This simple recipe uses chicken broth and chunky salsa to transform plain white rice into a marvelous side dish.
INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 2 tablespoons chopped onion
- 1 1/2 cups uncooked white rice
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 cup chunky salsa
Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
Mix rice into skillet, stirring often. When rice begins to brown, stir in chicken broth and salsa. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes, until liquid has been absorbed.
