Spanish Rice

My favorite sidekick to all Mexican food recipes in my repertoire. It's easier than you think... forget the stuff in a box, you can do this!

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

Servings: 8


2 cups white long grain rice

2 bouillon cubes

1/4 cup olive oil

1 large diced onion

1 can stewed, diced tomatoes

3 garlic cloves, diced

2 Tbsp cumin

2 Tbsp dried Italian seasoning

1 small package frozen green peas


-Cook rice according to directions, add bouillon cubes to water

-In a large skillet, add half of the olive oil, heat on medium high

-Add onion and garlic and saute until translucent

-Add remaining oil, then cooked rice, stir

-Add dry seasonings

-Stir constantly, you want the rice to brown slightly so turn up the heat if necessary

-When rice is slightly browned add stewed diced tomatoes

-Mix well until your rice turns that lovely pink color

-Add peas, saute another 5 minutes or until peas are no longer frozen

-TASTE IT! Do you need to add more salt, pepper, spice? Make it your own, please your pallet ;)

Pairs well with a LOT of dishes on the hooves page!
