Spanish Rice Made the Right Way

Authentic Spanish Rice
As I promised in my last post, I am sharing my Spanish rice recipe. This is a very simple rice dish, but oh so good. I even go as far to say it is better than most restaurants. I do not like all the extra things they put into the Spanish rice in the restaurants. I like it simple, but filled with flavor.

So here are the ingredients:

1 cup White Long Grain Rice
4 cups Water (approximate)
1 Small can Tomato Sauce
1 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Salt
1 teaspoon Pepper
1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
Vegetable Oil

In a medium skillet, heat about a tablespoon of vegetable oil until hot. Add the rice and let it brown, stir it continuously so it doesn't burn.

While you are browning the rice, add the garlic salt, pepper and cumin and stir in. After the rice is a nice golden color add about 3 to 4 cups water and the can of tomato sauce. Let it come all come to a boil and then turn down and let it simmer until the rice is tender and all the liquid has evaporated out.
You can add more salt at this point if you need too, otherwise it is ready to serve along side the Famous Terrazas Enchiladas.
 I hope you enjoy the rice as much as my family does. Happy eating!

  1. Printed this out - can't wait to make it!

  2. This was great! I had to simmer with the lid on, though. :)

    1. I am glad you liked it. Yes some do use the lid to simmer and that works perfectly fine also.
