This delicious dish is a family favorite because it's so versatile. Everyone loves it! I made it the night before a big family get-together and I served it on the table in about 30 minutes. The only tools you need for this dish are a few ingredients and a couple of cooking pots. If you're wondering how to make it, all you have to do is mix the ingredients and heat the pots together. Here's what you'll need for this delicious spanish rice dish.
The Ingredients. Usually, this dish would call for long-grain white rice but because we're on a tight budget here, I'm going to be using short-grain too. Either way, you'll need your preferred seasoning, chicken bouillon or liquid from your can, and a bit of salt or pepper to taste. For the liquid, you'll need your water or stock (or a combination) plus two cups of water. Just want something to brown the meat, onions, and garlic with, so go for your favorite cooking oil instead!
The Chicken Broth. This really isn't that important, but if you don't have chicken broth, well, you can't make a Spanish rice recipe that won't taste good. Buy some low-sodium chicken broth at the store and start roasting your onions and garlic for about 2 minutes before adding them to the broth. Season to your taste, but be sure to leave out the salt and pepper.
Another great way to jazz up your Mexican food and this beautiful dish is to serve it with some fresh tortilla chips on the side dish. I used corn chips because I didn't have any tortilla chips to use and they were so fresh. I was in the mood for something spicy, so I threw a little of the strained drained chicken broth into the tortilla chips to give it some extra spiciness. It was awesome!
Let's not forget the veggies when you make a Spanish rice recipe because they're absolutely integral to make the dish taste its best. Carrots are very good because they keep the carbohydrates in check. And onions are also great because they provide a nice flavor and can be seasonings as well. It's pretty easy to incorporate your favorite vegetables into your Mexican restaurant dishes and it adds a nice level of flare that helps to make your meal more enjoyable.
So here we have it, how to make rice recipe that doesn't take much time and can be adjusted to meet your own tastes and preferences. You could add more spices to it or less depending on how you think it's served. There's no end to what you can make if you really get creative and don't let the prep work. Serve it with some fresh salsa and you're guaranteed a big hit. And best of all, it's cheaper to make at home than buying in the store.
