Reviews for Spanish Rice
"My husband and I both loved this recipe. I had left over cooked instant brown rice, so I omitted the water. Turned out perfect!! Will for sure make this again."
"I think I would like it better without the bay leaf."
"This recipe is easy and cost effective! I am always looking for alternatives to buying over-priced convenience food at the grocery store! Thanks!"
"My family didn't care for this recipe. No flavor."
"I was looking forward to making this, and it was quite easy. Wasn't yummy at all. No flavor. Need to add some sauce, to get some flavor."
"I followed the recipe but sauteed the chopped onion and garlic together with the rice before adding the other ingredients. I also threw everything into a rice cooker so I didn't have to make sure it doesn't overcook. Turned out perfectly! Delicious!"
"Very easy and yummy. I added some cumin and chili powder for more flavor since I didn't have broth. Thanks!"
"Delish! I sautéed chopped onion and a chopped sweet pepper along with the rice. Also used a can of diced tomatoes with jalapeño to add a bit of zip. Finally, I added sliced, fully cooked chorizo sausage at the very end to make this a complete meal. dinner was a BIG hit!"
"can I use same recipe in a rice cooker (14 cup)"
"I have tried recipe after recipe trying to find a good spanish rice. I have finally found it! This recipe is so good and it is so easy! I love that it used minute rice so it is quick too!!"
