easy to make spanish rice is one of my favorite recipes. its simple like the portuguese tomato rice, but more flavorful and little spicy, and the method of cooking the rice is also different.
by the way, its really mexican rice but known as spanish rice. in mexico it is served as a side dish with other mexican dishes. i don’t know much about mexican food, other than tortillas, burittos, guacamole (my favorite) and the mexican bean recipes. read more about spanish rice here on wikipedia.
spanish rice is made by browning the rice with onions, garlic then cooked with capsicum, chopped tomatoes/tomato puree/tomato paste plus vegetable broth.
if using tomato puree, then reduce the amount of vegetable broth to 3 cups.
the photographs were shot, when it was time for the sun set and am not so pleased with it. anyways…. the recipe is good, tasty and a must try…
